Self Defense in Battery Trial

Our client was charged with misdemeanor battery after an altercation with a bar manager. If convicted, he potentially faced up to a year in county jail and a serious mark on his criminal record. We argued that he was actually defending himself at trial and the jury agreed. With a not guilty verdict, our client saw no negative effect on his life and was free to move on.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
