Suspended fine and spent conviction order imposed for serious assault occasioning bodily harm

Following successful negotiations with the police, a serious assault charge against our client was dropped in exchange for a guilty plea to another serious assault charge, which had several powerful mitigating circumstances. Following a successful bail variation application, our client was permitted to remain in contact with the victim whilst awaiting sentencing. James Jackson presented a plea in mitigation in which the background to the assault was explained in detail. The numerous mitigating factors were persuasively outlined, resulting in the court imposing a suspended fine for the offence. The court also allowed an application for a spent conviction order. This outstanding result allowed our client to get on with their life without a conviction tarnishing their record for the next 10 years.
