Assault
Services | Assault

Assault allegations can range from common assault to assault occasioning grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent. Assaults are categorised by the level of injury sustained. When an assault is being investigated, the police will take a number of factors into account such as if there was physical contact, if the injuries sustained were intentional and the gravity of the injuries.

Convicted of assault

If convicted of assault, the Magistrates can impose a maximum sentence of six months in custody. If convicted in the Crown Court for actual bodily harm (ABH), the maximum sentence is five years life imprisonment for assault occasioning grievous bodily harm with intent.
