Hi
I'm up at crown court on Wednesday for a minor offence. I was depressed & tried 2 give them a knife in case I hurt myself. I was thrown on the floor, handcuffs & everything. I never meant anyone any harm. Fair enough the police didn't know my intentions.

This has been dragged on since July! Getting stressed with 5 days to go. They have my medical records but fingers crossed!

What are you changed with? Did the magistrate refer it straight to crown court?

Gosh i'm so sorry that what you did has landed you in court.
I agree with life2live, it seems ridiculous.

It's understandable that you're nervous. :hug:
I'm not totally up on legal things, but have you got someone there to represent you?

Hopefully, fingers crossed, the judge will see common sense.

The police must have thought you were threatening them with the knife/or felt threatened. If you're at Crown Court it is a serious offence and you risk prison although if you have no prior history then I think that would be unlikely. Were you in public when this happened?

I'm sorry that this is happening to you though it must be very stressful.
