My partner has been charged with section 39, common assault. I haven’t pressed charges but the CPS have decided to go ahead based on witness statements. They have said that he could end up with 6 months in prison for this. Now I am sure that most people say this, but this was the most out of character thing that has ever happened, and I do not want to see him go to prison for this. My question is, is there anything I can do to help in this situation? A statement for the court or anything else? I’m not saying he shouldn’t be punished for this, but not prison.
