Case #: 08-XX33XX6TX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was leaving a party and several cars were parked around her vehicle making it difficult for her to pull out of her parking spot. The defendant gently touched another vehicle’s bumper as she was trying to leave. The owner of the other vehicle saw the vehicles make contact and accosted and berated the defendant. The vehicle owner then reached in to the Defendant’s vehicle in an attempt to obtain her information. The Firm established that by reaching into the Defendant’s vehicle, the vehicle owner committed a felony punishable by life in prison and the Defendant was justified by leaving in order to defend herself against such a crime. The Court dismissed all charges.
