This charge is very serious indeed. So serious that in Queensland it can only be dealt with by a District Court. Those courts have stated that if you are charged with wounding, a range of 18 months to 2 years imprisonment is appropriate. Matters which aggravate or make worse the penalty to be imposed include:
(a). more serious injury.
(b). how much preparation the offender took before committing the crime.
(c). whether the offender had a criminal history.
(d). whether the offender pleads guilty at an early or late stage in the proceedings.
