My wife and I were victims of a violent
attack. The attacker is a young, wealthy individual, who, prior to attacking us, had attacked another person, and resisted arrest. The police described him as “high as a kite on drugs”.
After being arrested, his family chose not to bail him out for two months, and not until the first preliminary hearing did they provide the defendant with top representation.
First, the defendant attacked our car, and with his bare hands caused $5,000 damage. Then he turned on us, and even though I’m disabled, I confronted the defendant as he threatened to kill me and my wife with a knife, which he never produced. But he still attacked me physically, causing injury to my hip and neck for which I’m still seeing an orthopedist three months later. My wife is terrified and deeply disturbed but refuses to see a therapist. The police described me as a hero.
Prior to attacking our car and subsequently my wife and me he had aggressively smashed another person’s windshield with a knife, which broke, and though he had something like the wooden handle in his pocket, the police didn’t find the broken blade.
TODAY, his high-powered defense attorney called me personally, and described himself as “I’m the attorney for the man who attacked you”, and asked “Can we talk?” I said I would call him back.
Can you please speculate WHY his attorney called me?
FYI: There are a total of 7 counts against the defendant: 2 cases of criminal
threat, felony vandalism, and resisting arrest. He has no public prior criminal record
; however, the police said he had a rap sheet in another state.
