Case Conclusion Date: 04.16.2008
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Outcome: Jury Acquittal on Assault charges, Hung Jury & Mistrial on Felony Harassment.
Description: Client was charged with Felony Harassment and two counts of Assault Fourth Degree. The incident involved a confrontation between client and numerous grocery store employees who refused to sell him alcohol. The case was tried in Whatcom County Superior Court before a 12-person jury. Numerous obstacles arose throughout trial. In short, because client chose not to testify, the trial judge refused to allow Mr. Ransom to argue self defense. Despite these obstacles, the jury returned favorable "not guilty" verdicts on the Assault charges and was undecided on the Felony Harassment charge. The hung jury resulted in a mistrial of the State's Felony Harassment charge.
