Trial Result - Hung Jury on Assault State v. Joe B.

I recently tried the case of State of Maine v. Joe B., a domestic assault case. There, the Defendant was accused of getting into a fight with his then-girlfriend while intoxicated, and slamming her face into the pavement on the Martin's Point Bridge. We presented a self-defense case, and argued that the "alleged victim" started the physical altercation. On cross-examination of the "alleged victim," I developed the theory that her injuries, which were relatively extensive, could not have been inflicted as she described. Trial lasted 3 days. The jury hung after over a day of deliberations.
