It does not come as a surprise to anyone that people are prone to make mistakes. In some cases, these mistakes may be more serious than others and come with more serious consequences. Though people may not be destined to repeat their mistakes, others may assume that they will. For example, a Minnesota man who was previously charged with violent crimes now faces accusations of assault.
A 27-year-old man was recently arrested as a result of an alleged assault that is said to have occurred on a day in mid-August. Police claim that he beat another man with what is described as a “souvenir baseball bat.” When the bat broke, police claim, he used a cooler to beat the man.
The alleged victim transported himself to the hospital where he required stitches. Court documents claim that the reason the men were fighting is unclear. The defendant was previously convicted of attempted premeditated murder. Though he was sentenced as an adult, he was a minor at the time, so the details of that case are unavailable.
In addition to the reason for the argument, there are many other details that are unclear, including whether there were additional witnesses or any other evidence that supports the claims against the Minnesota man. As a result of the charges he faces, he could face a $14,000 fine and spend seven years in prison. Because the decisions he makes in the coming weeks will likely have a significant impact on the rest of his life, he will likely rely upon an experienced professional on his side as he navigates the criminal justice system.
