Hefty fines incoming I'd imagine?

From reading online it seems a maximum prison sentence of 6 months, i suspect he'll more than likely get a fine and community order should he plead guilty. Can only presume the other two men are the guys he was fighting (or punching)?

EDIT according to cricinfo it has a maximum prison sentence of 2 years for a single offence http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/22107847/stokes-charged-cps-affray

It's a public order offence, he will get fined and that's it

I suspect you are right. As any fine for this stuff is dependent on income i bet he's regretting that IPL deal  :D

So Stokes basically gets a slap on the wrist and no more. Should've been selected in the Ashes.

Or should have kept his (No Swearing Please) together in the first place.

Will certainly miss the ODI series in Aus, but could be on the plane to NZ. Suppose it depends when his 'trial' is due to commence

It sounds like the least possible charge he could get
Maybe they think affray will get a guilty verdict with doubt on anything more serious

Could get a hefty fine from the ecb

I would think he's going to plead guilty to affray, take a fine and community service and get back to work. ECB will hammer him for a few quid as well, as mentioned above.

The key thing is whether the case stays at magistrates level (fine and or max 6 months) or goes up to a crown court (fine and or 3 years)
A magistrate is limited in what punishment can be handed out in cases of affray so that would be better for Stokes.
Feels like a fine and community service coming up...

oh will he afford the fine! That 2M pay cheque he'll probably get from the IPL will help

 I'd think he's merely likely to be bound over... Which does not involve any admission of guilt.

 Could put the ECB in an awkward position...
