Outcome:  Jury Trial - Not Guilty[1]

Description:  The Commonwealth alleged that the defendant entered his girlfriend’s home and forced her into a basement bedroom holding a handgun pointed at her head.  The defendant’s infant and 2 year old children were also in the room.  Prior to the officers’ arrival, the Commonwealth alleged that multiple shots had been fired by the defendant at the girlfriend and her brother.  The Philadelphia Police Department responded to the apparent hostage situation with a SWAT unit consisting of 6 SWAT officers armed with assault rifles and body armor.  Eventually, the 6 SWAT officers breach the basement bedroom and claim that the defendant fired a shot at the officers before returning fire. One of the SWAT officers fired his assault rifle striking my client in the head causing a non-life threatening injury.  The Commonwealth proceeded on assault of law enforcement by firearm on the 6 SWAT officers.  A conviction on the charge of assault of law enforcement officer carried at mandatory 20-40 year sentence for each count.  If convicted, the defendant faced a potential aggregate sentence of 120-240 years of incarceration for all 6 counts.
