It was a very worrying time for us and I would like to pass on my very grateful thanks to Michael Gibson and other members of your staff who looked after my son’s interests in an understanding and efficient manner.  We were relieved at the sentence given and feel that it was in large part due to the way that you presented the facts to the Magistrates.
