Client was charged with two counts each of the following: unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and aggravated assault. Each set of counts was for a handgun and a bat that client was alleged to have used against two customers and a car dealership that he was employed at. Client and defense witnesses maintained that the two customers were the instigators and that client was acting in self-defense and defense of others (namely, the elderly owner of the dealership). Client faced a mandatory state prison sentence between five and ten years if found guilty at trial, with at least three-and-one-half years of a parole ineligibility.
After a lengthy trial, client was found not guilty by a jury of all counts except one. An application to the county’s assignment judge resulted in a probationary sentence for that one charge and client avoided any state prison charge.
