I want to know what sentence will be
Expert:  Jo C. replied 17 days ago.

Do you want to tell me what happened?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 15 days ago.

Thank you.

I can't say what the sentence will be without the facts of offence although the statutory maximum is six months.

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.

Been told I’m looking at a conditional caution due to being low level and first offence?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 15 days ago.

Well, like I said, I can't say because you haven't told me the facts.
