Commonwealth v. M. Farmer - Attempted Malicious Wounding - RELEASED ON BOND
Client is charged with attempted malicious wounding for allegedly trying to stab someone at a club after hours. Client, however, was acting in self-defense as a mob congregated around him, threatening to assault him. After the preliminary hearing, the judge found probable cause for the case to go forward to trial as a felony. However, based upon the inconsistent testimony by Commonwealth witnesses, as well as the defense witness testimony corroborating client's assertions, the judge changed his bond status from "No Bond" to a secured bond. Now, client will be able to help his lawyers mount a defense while he is out, which will give them the best possible chance of success at trial.
