Another Jury Win by Tyler Beach

Our client was accused of Assault IV (punishable by up to 1 year of jail) and Harassment (punishable by up to 6 months of jail).  The allegation was that while our client was in the front passenger seat of a car he began punching the driver and then climbed onto her lap while she was still in the driver seat.  Amongst the many issues Mr. Beach challenged at trial were the facts that the injury to the driver’s face was on the left side of her face (thus he would have had to punch around her head to hit the left side) and that our client (who is very tall) could not fit physically between her lap and the steering wheel.  Accordingly, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty on both charges!
