The prosecution has spoken, and they have decided that Christian Bale should only receive a warning. The warning though is only good if he decides to plead guilty to assault in the incident that occurred with his mother and sister last month prior to the Dark Knight premiere.
If Christian decides to plead not guilty, then he would face charges still, and the possibility of imprisonment. Kind of a tough situation for Christian. It seems as if nothing wrong had occurred, that they would just let him go with no charges being filed.
So, something must have happened. It sucks for him that he can walk away with a wrist slap if he pleads guilty, but then every a-hole blogger like myself could start every post about him with the fact that he was convicted of assault on his mom and sister. That doesn't sound like loads of fun.
I think he should plead not guilty and take his chances if he didn't do anything. The problem with pleading guilty is that everyone forgets the facts of the case and only remembers the result.
