Possession of bladed article case this morning in Norwich.

Was about to ask for an adjournment for a pre-sentence report but then got a random thought to make off the cuff submissions that the sentencing guidelines in Povey, which suggest a starting point of 12 weeks custody should not apply.

Bench retired for a good while.

Outcome: a fine and a happy client + family.

Early start well worth it. 😊
