SUCCESSFUL EXAMPLES OF LEGAL CHALLENGES

Homicide/Self-Defense: My teenaged client came home from school, got a gun, and sat in a chair waiting for his father to come home from work. He shot and killed him when he walked in the door. We used experts to explain why ten years of horrific abuse by the father against my client, his mother and brother, and the signals of imminent violence from the father made this a case of self-defense.

Assault "by Tickling": My client approached a co-worker to chat. She asked him to come back later to talk. He asked if he could have a kiss, reached forward, and gently touched her side. She said no and left. The State charged him with assault "by tickling." The trial court would not dismiss. The jury convicted. But on appeal, we persuaded the court it was not a crime to touch someone without intending to harm or offend. The conviction was reversed and dismissed.
