My son has been charged with GBH and has to decide to plead guilty or not guilty. He has been informed that if he pleads guilty he will get an 8 month jail sentence. If he pleads not guilty and is proven guilty he will get a much longer sentence. My son and his family do not want him in jail. He has no prior convictions. If he pleads guilty is there a time at sentencing he can apply for an ICO, community service or any other options. I'm finding it difficult to believe prison is his only option. Could someone please share their knowledge and help us please.
