Outcome:Aquitted of all charges after trial.
Description:Client charged with Resisting Arrest, Obstructing Governmental Administration and Felony Assault of a police officer. He fired his previous attorney and hired my office. He admitted that he resisted by biting a police officer causing a serious bite mark to the officer's arm. The issue in the case was whether the police were within their authority to enter his home. With his previous attorney at a hearing the judge decided that the police were within their legal authority to enter the home. However, at trial the jury was asked to decide the same question. Mr. Isley hired Raiser & Kenniff for the trial.
