My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ontario, Canada
Okay, so basically this case is really old (10 years ago), what basically happened was my husband (who works as a cook) got into a fight with one of the cleaners over a missing bowl, and he chased the cleaner down and pured hot grease over the cleaner's face and neck, causing noticible burns.
My hubby was charged by the prosecution with assault in the provincial courts causing bodily harm and was given 18 months in prison.
Is this unfair? Why was the charge not just "assault" but "assult causing bodily harm"? Wasn't 18 months too long?
