Customer Question

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
its not so much the breaches for feeding birds on balcony for 5 years refusing to stop, so breaches were broken, the fact was he said on sentencing to 15 months to run concurrently, ,but I found out in prison that the sentence was in fact 15 weeks, not as he said ,so I got quite ill, in prison ,,I am 66, led to believe I was going to be there for a long time.

OK, so what would you like to know?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 15 days ago.

Without the information I asked for I can only give you a general answer but I hope this helps.

If you mean that you only served half of 15 weeks rather than half of 15 months then that is obviously very positive and there is no appeal from that.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
