I've heard of cases where convicted felons received less than 2 years for a.ssult with a deadly weapon and possesion of a gun by a felon.
25 years after you beat the murder charge is crazy. Vito has to appeal this decission
People keep talking about loopholes... I just see a prosecutor doing what they teach law students in their first year law classes. You pin the heaviest charge you THINK you can prove (in this case murder) and then you go from the top down (all the way down to a.ssault). They couldn't pin murder on him... so they went down the list.
If someone in your family got in a f!ght, and the person pulled a gun out and shot your family member would you want them to get off just because they feared for their life?
The defendant is then accused of entering the booth and punching the victim. A f!ght ensued and ended with Hamilton being shot in the chest. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Needless to say... He pulled a gun out and shot him. It's still an a.ssault lol. Self And since a weapon is involved an aggravated a.ssault.
