Question: Shirley is married to Arnold. One day, Arnold slaps Shirley around the head causing cuts and bruising. A few days later he pushes her against a hot oven causing a burn to her forearm and a cut to her hand. The same night he cuts off a substantial portion of her hair following an argument. The following week Arnold says that unless Shirley can get him £1,000, the sum of money he owes to Cliff, he will break both her legs. The violence has worn down Shirley’s resistance. She becomes depressed, anxious and fearful. She goes to a designer shop the next day and grabs several expensive leather handbags from an assistant, runs out without paying and sells them to passers-by outside a market in another part of town. She receives only £600 and believes that Arnold will be extremely angry that she has not found the full £1,000.

At home she explains her actions to him, whereupon Arnold picks up a hot iron. In the mistaken belief that this is a threatening gesture, Shirley picks up a knife and slashes Arnold’s forearm. He shouts that he was merely going to iron a dress for her to wear that evening.

Consider all possible offences Arnold and Shirley maybe guilty of and any defences which, maybe available to them.

Answer: Arnold Arnold may be charged with the offence of Grievous Bodily Harm and Wounding. This is to to “unlawfully and maliciously wound...
