Assault with a Dangerous Weapon

Assault-With-A-Dangerous-WeaponPolice charged elderly client with assaulting a local delivery person with a dangerous weapon. Prior to trial, the state insisted that he serve at least one year in prison. After thoroughly investigating the facts and arguing the law of self defense and citizens arrest, our firm was able to help our client avoid a trial and to secure a sanction that did not include any jail. Use of force in defense of yourself or another requires skilled research and advocacy.
