Not Guilty Verdicts - Three Counts of Assault Fourth Degree
In May 2019, attorney Matthew Zenner represented M.S. in a jury trial on three counts of assault fourth degree. The trial took place in King County, Washington. One of the assaults was alleged to be domestic violence. The prosecution alleged that M.S. entered an apartment, intended to start a fight, and assaulted three people. Mr. Zenner argued that his client acted in self-defense and cross-examined the alleged victims and uncovered inconsistencies in their versions. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty on all three counts in under an hour. His client lost his job because of the allegations but now can return to work.
