I don't think the DA would have had much of a case with his star witness having such a record. I think the DA was bluffing all along hoping the guy would take the lesser charges. The DA thought he had a slam dunk till the story got out.
My question is what would this Alexander fellow have done if he had not been armed? He has a criminal record. He must have been intent on something because a person in their right mind doesn't hang around after being fired at.
He had no intention of killing the guy. If he had wanted to do that he could have done it on the first shot at that range.
It wouldn't have taken me long to come up with a verdict in that case If I had been on the jury.
I see the shooting is till being investigated....
Have a nice day at the range
