Published: November 13, 2023
In a November 13th article, CBS News writes about the acquittal of an unhoused man who spent more than 500 days behind bars following his altercation with a pedestrian.
Weintraub attorney Alexa Horner, who worked as one of the public defenders on the case, says he was only acting in self-defense after being harassed and threatened repeatedly by a group of people outside of a bar in June of 2022.
“We thank the jury for evaluating the evidence and understanding that Mr. Sutton acted in self-defense in response to repeated acts of aggression by the pedestrian that night.”
