The State of Texas v. S.K.
Case Number: 17-1203-K277
The client was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and family violence— a second degree felony charge. The defense presented a theory of self-defense but the client was still convicted. Despite the conviction, the jury recommended the minimum punishment and the judge placed the client on probation. The Defense sentencing case was so strong that the Judge initially recommend that the client serve one year of probation for conviction of a 2nd Degree felony with a deadly weapon. Unfortunately, the law requires a minimum of two years. The Defense also obtained significant testimony from the husband on cross examination that was very beneficial to the custody case.
Result: Client found guilty but served the minimum sentence of two years’ of probation.
