So, What’s the Law?

One word: “complex.”  But if you really want to comb through it yourself, here is a link.

But, what you really need to know is this:

Violent offences are invariably split up into two categories — domestic and public.  The former is that which occurs inside a house to someone you know and the latter involves a member of the public, in a public place.

Now, importantly, this type of offending doesn’t necessarily mean you yourself doing the harming, it can mean you counselled or procured the use of, or attempting or conspiring to use violence against another person.

It can also be often the case that these charges are brought in conjunction with a bunch of other charges. Getting legal advice is your best bet and sooner rather than later.
