Los Angeles Violent Crimes and Weapons

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Jun 29, 2010 | 0 Comments

Los Angeles Violent Crime Defense Attorneys have a difficult job when they have to try and convince a jury and/or judge that their client was either not breaking the law or acting in self defense during an alleged incident. However, when a weapon (or multiple weapons) is introduced into a criminal investigation, it means that the job of the Defense Lawyer is that much more difficult. A recent incident highlighted how grim the prospects can be for anyone involved in a violent crime. A man wearing a Los Angeles Lakers uniform attempted to rob a security guard of his wallet at the downtown Los Angeles World Trade Center, only to have things to out of control. The security guard hit the man with a flashlight, causing him to lose his assault pistol. The robber was not identified, but police believe they have the important and necessary clues to both identify and arrest the suspect. There was blood that came from a cut to his head, prescription glasses and the assault weapon which fell out of his hands during the scuffle. Allegedly, the crime took place after midnight with the man pulling out a Tech 9 semi-automatic assault weapon and ordering the guard to the ground after asking for directions. The guard courageously fought back and grabbed the gun with one hand while using the other hand to hit the robber on the head with a flashlight.
