We recently represented a client who had been charged with breach of a non molestation order. It was his 2nd breach of the order.
After charge at the police station he had been refused bail by the olive and attended court in custody. There was substantial mitigation for our client regarding g the reasons for the breach.
A second breach of a NMO normally attracts immediate imprisonment. However, the court in this case were persuaded by our Mr Haycock, after hearing mitigation and the reasons for the breach, to impose a community order as punishment. Client was released from the court cells and obviously happy at outcome.
If you are charged with such an offence or have to be interviewed by the police about such a matter, please contact us 24/7 on 07956. 892507. Free representation is always available at the police station and legal aid or S.36 funding may be available at court.
