Excellent site, keep up the good work. I read a lot of forums on a daily

basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a

quick comment to say I’m glad I found your forum. Thanks

Is the charge Affray or Criminal Damage and Affray? Because the damage caused is over £5,000 the hearing could take place in either a magistrates or a crown court. Once in court of course previous good character will mitigate the sentence and any sentence will depend on the defendants age and the circumstances surrounding the offence:

    * Intentional/reckless
    * Motivation revenge or political
    * Hate Crime
    * Pre-planned
    * Extent of damage
    * Damage to a school or other public amenity
    * Damage to emergency equipment
    * Significant public or private fear caused

You should contact a criminal solicitor if you haven\'t already.
