State v. Mr. H. (DMC No.7177) (Tempe Municipal Court No. 07-976814): Mr. H. and his roommate were at a non-alcoholic fraternity event on ASU’s campus. When they returned to their dormroom, Mr. H.’s roommate struck him in the back with a beanbag. Mr. H. instinctively turned and punched his roommate in the face. He was subsequently charged with Assault. We were able to show the prosecutor that self-defense was proper. The State agreed with us and dismissed all charges.
