When Self-Defense Becomes Assault
Oftentimes assault charges will result from self-defense in an altercation. When the self-defense is against a retired police officer, blue waters muddy. Should you ever become embroiled in a criminal case in which you are up against not only a criminal charge, but one brought by a law enforecement plaintiff, you are best advised to hire a criminal attorney who has been down that road before. Joel Bacher successfully defended his client against a retired NYC police officer --- obviously in plainclothes --- in an altercation over , all things, a parking spot. Tempers flared and a confrontation ensued that resulted in an arrest. At trial, after arguments, it was determined that Mr. Bacher's client was not guilty of the offense tried.
