Hi,

Ex partner due in court this coming week for communication. Probation have recommended three years community service rather than a custodial sentence. He will have served nearly six months when he goes to court. Has anyone experienced the judge going against probation recommendations? Feeling very emotional today and baby is due in two weeks. Trying to prepare myself for every outcome and driving myself insane. Thank you to everyone who has responded on my previous posts, I really appreciate it xx

Hello,

I hope the pregnancy goes well in the final weeks I can't imagine what that does to your emotions.
My partner recently got sentenced for one communication and meeting with a police decoy and unfortunatly got custodial for 2 years. We were fully expecting custodial. I don't want to scare you but thought I'd let you know. Every situation is different and has different factors.
If he's served 6months on remand this will be taken off his sentence as well.



I wish you luck in the decision and the birth of your child. xxx

Thank you for your response. It was also a police decoy but he declined to meeting. Not sure if this will go in his favour though. Were probation involved and did they advise a custodial sentence? xx

That should definitely go in his favour declining the meeting as it's an additional charge. I wasn't aware what probation had suggested to be fair but I guess they didn't suggest it as I was not aware of it xx

The charges to the best of my knowledge are sexual communication with a minor, sending a sexual image and inciting a minor to engage in a sexual act. I have limited information as the police were less than helpful and the information I have is from ss and his parents. Sentencing has been pushed back a couple of weeks so it's likely I'll have the baby before he goes to court. Thank you for your well wishes. I hope that you and your partner are doing as well as possible xx
