According to one of the Sagheads on Gachat the club have known about it for 7 weeks..

Happened June 2nd and police were involved so not surprised. 

Can't sack him until found guilty.

Right. Slight break with tradition here but...

The Fewers on Gaschat seem to be more concerned for the victim and are rightly condemning domestic violence.

Which, to be fair, you'd expect from 99.9% of the population, and they've been no different.

They're all idiots mind.

I think we have to be a bit careful in claiming the high ground here? It sounds like his wife isn't pressing charges which makes it similar to the Danny Simpson case. Obviously with Barton being the manager rather than 'just' a player, that makes it a bit different and Simpson wasn't employed by City at the time of the offence and the conviction was spent but hitting a woman is the same regardless of who the perpetrator is.

I would imagine that he'll be put on gardening leave at the very least until it reaches court but isn't domestic violence difficult to prosecute if the victim doesn't want to press charges?

Looking like another huge error in judgment by Wael though, it's not as if this has come out of the blue (no pun intended) with Barton's past convictions and certainly adds to the circus over there.

So is that two assault cases for him at court including the Barnsley manager, what’s the bet he just gets a slap on the wrist 

He has previous assault convictions, and has had prison sentences. 

On that basis, any sentencing judge in either case would be hard pressed; not to give him another custodial sentence for either offence.

Domestic violence is quite rightly not accepted nowadays, and the Giggs situation shows what the club really should do in this situation (suspension or gardening leave pending the trial).

However the Gas have know about this since the 2nd June; and of course employed him in the first instance when he had a court case outstanding against him.

In my eyes they are morally redundant here. Unfortunately, the Gas have so much invested in the "Barton Project", that i think they're blinded as to how bad this man is for their club.

At least with our Simpson situation, it was years ago, and the matter had been dealt with.

Assaulting your partner, may well be the final straw for him though. Plenty of parties/Sponsors/Fans won't tolerate that.

Yeh any normal member of the public would be put back in prison so it shouldn’t be any different for him

Gardening leave until it reaches court... he's up before the beak on Monday. And I'd be surprised if he was going in on Sunday.

Technically he committed this offence whilst on Crown Court bail for the other Stendal assault. The jufge could refuse to give him bail again.

Looking at the Sun article i think, like Simpsons DA case; its going to be a victimless prosecution(ie she won't support).

However she has injuries, and no doubt the 999 call, plus bodyworn footage from the attending officers will be damning.

He has so much bad character against him now. But the nature of this offence is a step too far...

What a vile **** he is... him and his wretched brother 

His brother commited one of the most wretched murders in modern history, yet not too many people are aware of it unfortunately. Hideous family, wouldn’t shed a single tear for any death of that lot, all rotten to the core are the Bartons.

Any man who hits a woman is a grade A ***. To hit your wife the mother of your children well I have no words . 
 

He was in his element blaming everyone and everything when the fewers were getting relegated. Always someone else’s fault.

Vile
