Hi I'm struggling to find info on what would happen in this situation: Character 'A' attacks and inflicts grievous bodily harm on 'B'. 'A' then calls an ambulance and turns himself in to the police. 'B' tells the police he doesn't want to pursue it because it was a 'settling of a score' kind of situation and 'B' wants to forgive 'A'. I've read that it doesn't necessarily matter what 'B' wants. Apparently if it's a pretty serious assault (which it is) then the police or the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will probably want to take it to court. However, that's if there is a 'suspect'. In my situation they have a confession already. All that needs deciding is the severity of the punishment if any and I'm not sure how that would happen and what would be the realistic sentencing. Any help would be huge, thanks very much!
