Our client was a gentleman who was accused of threatening a teenager with a gun. Someone had been ringing doorbells and running off in our client’s neighborhood, including several times at his home. When it happened again, our client investigated and found someone hiding in some bushes. When he discovered that it was a teenager, he gave the teen a ride back to the house where the teen was staying. The teen accused our client of threatening him with a gun, but we were able to show the jury that the teen’s story was not credible.
