Case 2: Aggravated Assault PDF Print E-mail
My client was a teenager that was involved in a love triangle with a girl and another teenager. Prior to coming to me he had a few minor brushes with the law. He was being charged with three counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, criminal damage to property, and stalking. State alleged my client had followed the girl and another guy to a parking lot, tried to run them over with his truck, and pulled a crow bar threatening them. As the girl tried to leave the parking lot, he rammed his car into hers preventing her from leaving. State offered my client twenty years of probation and one year in prison.

At trial, I got the “victim” to admit he pulled his knife, but he then stated only in self-defense because he thought my client had a gun. However, right after that statement, he admitted he then walked up to my client’s vehicle and punched his window so hard that he broke his own hand. Jury obviously didn’t find it credible that a man with a knife walks up to a man allegedly with a gun and tries to attack him. At that point, my client got scared and accidently backed up into the girl’s car. Jury acquitted my client of all charges except the misdemeanor stalking.
