Attorney Ebner recently represented a client charged with Simple Assault and obtained a “not guilty” verdict for him at a bench trial. This client was facing a possible maximum sentence of two years of incarceration and a $5,000 fine. He was accused of swinging a hammer at the alleged victim. At trial, Attorney Ebner established that the accuser was the relative of the client’s tenant who had been evicted and was supposed to have vacated the residence on the date in question. The client testified credibly that he arrived at the residence intending to begin work on the house and found that the tenant was refusing to leave. He called the police and sat on the porch to await their arrival. The client was holding a hammer and the alleged victim tried to take it from him. A struggle ensued over the hammer and when the client let go of the hammer, the alleged victim fell down to the ground and was injured. Thanks to Attorney Ebner’s representation, the judge found this client “not guilty” of the assault charge.
