Hardly anybody is ever sent to prison for common assault. While the offence theoretically carries a maximum penalty of 6 months imprisonment, it would have to be at the very top end of 'Category 1' for a custodial sentence to be passed. (e.g. if you'd deliberately set out to attack a vulnerable person, such as a child, and then carried out a sustained assault...

Hardly anybody is ever sent to prison for common assault. While the offence theoretically carries a maximum penalty of 6 months imprisonment, it would have to be at the very top end of 'Category 1' for a custodial sentence to be passed. (e.g. if you'd deliberately set out to attack a vulnerable person, such as a child, and then carried out a sustained assault against the victim). Normal 'day to day' convictions CAN'T result in a custodial sentence.

See pages 189 to 192 here to read exactly what the magistrates will have in front of them when passing sentence:

"i never been involved in any crime in life." Well, apart from a couple of assaults.
very unlikely to be a prison sentence

You should also work on anger management - that is learning that when you are angry - NOT to hit people.

I got charged for assault by my girl friend for year 2011 to 2015 and breach of peace for 2015 in Scotland on 10 jan 2018 . There are 2 count of common assault. will i got prison sentence i never been involved in any crime in life. I got 2 charges of assault and breach of peace. I do not want to go to prison. I am mentally depressed from last 2 years and i lock my self in flat for last 2 years. she tried many thing to get me fixed like sending her friend to my flat then her friend put sex assault on me in 2015 December. but police set me free after questioning me. Now this charges by her i am really depressed please if any body can help ?
if you haven't assaulted anyone, you shouldn't be punished at all. You need a solicitor at the very least, and maybe should be talking to your GP about depression.

I am really depressed and upset. i had locked my self up in flat for last 2 years donot know what will happen? please let me know what going to happen on my court date? thanks

Repeating yourself and shouting really is not making your post any clearer.
As jno says...you need a solicitor to brief you what to expect, if anything.....and to see your GP for your anger management problems and depression. And as Baldric mentions, your persistence in repeating yourself and posting in block capitals (shouting in posting terms) does not help your thread one bit.

i am sorry but i never intend to shout i forget that my caps is on but can anyone tell me that is there any possibility of prison... m literally stressed. Sorry if i hurt anyone.
