The State charged our client with assaulting his domestic partner, and our client, an older gentleman without a record of violence, claimed self-defense. Chris highlighted inconsistencies in the complainant’s testimony and established that the complainant committed prior acts of violence against our client and others. After about four hours of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. Both the client and the Office of the Public Defender are extremely pleased with the outcome.
