Hello im hoping someone can give some advice on this subject. I recently found out my wife was cheating on me, upon discovering this i made the stupid move of threatening to kill her, I know this was wrong i had had one too many drinks, was very emotional and i know this was a stupid move, i would never have hurt her but i understand the severity of my actions. Now this is where i go from being stupid and drunk to just plain stupid as hell ! Part of my bail conditions was that i was to have no contact with my wife, A few days later i sent her a txt asking if she was ok, my intentions were purely to find out if she was ok, however under advice form her lawyer she reported this text to the police, So now i have broken my bail conditions and the police called me in so i could be charged with that offence. Well due to the emmotional pressure i was under i did an even more outragously stupid thing, i got on a plane and left for england which is where i sit now typing this, So i didnt appear at court and now i have a string of other charges against me. I have been here a couple of weeks now and have subsequently been talking to my wife and we are trying to work through this problem, she has found a councilor to talk about her actions and likewise, so have i. So my question is twofold<br /><br />1. What is going to be the likley sentence for the crimes i have commited?<br />2. If my wife and are going to reconcile, will the courts takes into consideration?<br /><br />So any help wouldl be greatly appreciated<br /><br />lee
