When people think about Violent Crimes, they might imagine the alleged attacker to be big, muscular, often a gang member or some other stereotype. However, at San Diego's Comic-Con there was an attack that involved strangely peculiar individuals. As most Los Angeles Criminal Defense Lawyers know, Violent Crime in Southern California comes in all shapes and sizes.
A man wearing a "Harry Potter" t-shirt allegedly stabbed another man int he eye with a pen when they got into an argument over whether one of them was sitting too close to the other. The injured man was in his 20's and taken to the hospital with a minor cut. The attacker was arrested and booked for assault with a deadly weapon. The two men were sitting in a 6,000 person room where they were going to hear Seth Rogan discuss his role in the science fiction comedy "Paul." Comic-Con took place from Thursday until Sunday, and this is the only known case of violence in the comic book convention's history.
For any Defense Attorney it is important to know every detail of how and why an alleged violent attack took place. Some supposed crimes can better be described as self defense, making the legal defense fairly simple. In this case, there were tens of thousands of people fighting for just a few thousand chairs, meaning that the convention center in San Diego was almost asking for a fight to occur. When a judge or jury hears the details of such a case, a skilled Attorney may be able to convince them that the circumstances involved were causing people to act irrationally.
Violent crimes in Los Angeles can result in serious penalties if you are convicted. Years in prison, heavy fines, probation and other court actions can all result in a severely penalized individual. Such a conviction can even follow you around from work place to work place, meaning you will have a hard time getting the job you want if you have been convicted of a felony, or even a misdemeanor.
