Had a client from my church get arrested the other night for agg. bat. deadly weapon w/o intent. Basically, her drugged up son who had been kicked out of the house came back at midnight and she wouldn't let him back in. He called the police who assisted him throwing rocks at the sliding glass door to break in. My client, scared, grabs a knife inside the house. The police arrest her for the above stated offense. First appearance today, I argue and the Judge holds, 1st) no assault as she was in the house and therefore had no ability to commit the battery, 2nd) a parent has an absolute right to throw her punk ass kid the fuck out without going threw the eviction process.
Two other hearings today. Score me-3, State 0
