Our client was driving when a pedestrian blocked his car. He asked the pedestrian to move but the pedestrian shouted profanities and began to threaten him physically.
Our client, a concealed weapon permit holder, fired a warning shot at the individual to prevent the pedestrian from harming him.
Originally, the prosecutor’s office wanted more than a year of jail. Jail. We successfully argued that he had a reasonable claim for self-defense and he was sentenced to no jail and just probation.
And he will not be a convicted felon! Once he is finished with probation, he will be able to restore his 2nd amendment gun rights!
