Our client was accused of punching two men outside a bar, leaving one with a broken eye socket and tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. We presented "self-defense" and "defense of others" arguing that while our client did not deny hitting the one man (he did deny hitting the second man), he did so because the man was threatening him and had just knocked a female to the ground. In speaking with a juror after the trial, we learned our "reasonable doubt" visual aid was a huge help to the five Jurors who immediately agreed the defendant was not guilty and echoed many of our closing arguments in explaining the affirmative defense to the sixth juror. As in most of our trials, our special jury instructions and use of visual aids throughout the trial led one juror to comment on how clear we made the events seem. Throughout the trial and again in closing, we emphasized that "self-defense" and "defense of others" allowed our client to defend himself or the injured woman with reasonable force and the Jury agreed, returning a verdict of not guilty on all counts.
