    Client charged with stabbing a neighbor. Our client suffered from mental illness and claimed that she believed the neighbor was a child molester.

At trial, we argued a very specific area of the law that fit the facts of the case. We also spent extensive time with our client to prepare him to testify so the jury would see his most positive attributes. In the end, the jury found him not guilty of aggravated assault as charged, but only found him guilty of simple assault. He was sentenced to time served, and avoided a felony conviction on his record.
