Yongsan Army Base, Korea
Charges: Three Victim Stabbing - Aggravated Assault with Intent to Inflict
Grievous Bodily Harm
In this Korea court martial case, our client, an 8th Army Soldier, was
charged with stabbing three individuals at the UN Club in Itaewon, Korea.
He was at the club when his battle buddy got jumped by a group of thugs
and was getting beat down inside the club. Our client pulled a knife and
took out the guys who started the brawl, saving his friend from a serious beating.
He was subsequently charged with the three stabbings. We utilized the CCTV
footage from the club, along with other evidence and testimony, to show
that his actions were done in self-defense and self-defense of another.
Essentially, he reasonably feared his friend was in danger of loss of life
or grievous bodily harm and used the force necessary (a knife in this
case) to defend his friend.
The jury deliberate for approximately 5 hours and fully acquitted our client.
Result: FULL ACQUITTAL – NOT GUILTY OF ALL CHARGES AND SEPCIFICATIONS
