Charges:

In this Korea court martial case, our client, an 8th Army Soldier, was charged with stabbing three individuals at the UN Club in Itaewon, Korea.

He was at the club when his battle buddy got jumped by a group of thugs and was getting beat down inside the club. Our client pulled a knife and took out the guys who started the brawl, saving his friend from a serious beating.

He was subsequently charged with the three stabbings. We utilized the CCTV footage from the club, along with other evidence and testimony, to show that his actions were done in self-defense and self-defense of another.

Essentially, he reasonably feared his friend was in danger of loss of life or grievous bodily harm and used the force necessary (a knife in this case) to defend his friend.

The jury deliberated for approximately 5 hours and fully acquitted our client.

Result:

  • Full acquittal
  • Not guilty of all charges and specifications
