    Client Avoids Immediate Term of Imprisonment|Kangs Solicitors

    Amandeep Murria of Kangs Solicitors recently represented a client at Birmingham Crown Court who originally faced an allegation of Section 20 Wounding.

    S20 Wounding   Offences Against the Person Act 1861

    The offence of S20 Wounding is committed when a person unlawfully and maliciously, either:

    • wounds another person; or
    • inflicts grievous bodily harm upon another person.

    It is an ‘either way offence’, which, in the Crown Court, carries a maximum penalty on indictment of five years’ imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine.

    Summarily, in the Magistrates’ Court, the maximum penalty is six months’ imprisonment and/or a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum.

    Following preparation of our client’s defence for Trial, necessary  because some allegations were denied, lengthy discussions were conducted with the Prosecution which resulted in them agreeing to accept a guilty plea to a charge of S47 Assault.

    This was accompanied by a basis of plea fairly setting out the facts of the case.

    S47  Assault – Offences Against the Person Act  1861

    The offence of S47 Assault is less serious than S20 described above.

    It, also, is an ‘either way offence’, which carries a maximum penalty on indictment in the Crown Court of five years’ imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine not exceeding the statutory maximum.

    A pre-sentence report provided  an in depth analysis  of our client’s personal circumstances and the Probation Service put forward recommendations to assist the Court dispose of the matter at the Sentencing Hearing.

    Our client received a suspended sentence together with unpaid work and supervision requirements.

    After the Hearing, our client  stated:

    “The sentence I received was as a result of your dedicated hard work during these proceedings ”.
