    man seen by court as the aggressor when drunk X comes knocking, what went wrong?

    Drunk, angry guy is kicking your front door, but the court decides that YOU are the aggressor?


    When Correa was ultimate brought to trial, he chose a bench rather than a jury trial. In a bench trial, the judge assumes the “finder of fact” role that would normally be carried by the jury.

    A key defense at trial was that the Defendant had acted in justifiable self defense in using force against the man.

    The trial court, however, rejected his argument. Instead, the court found that it was the Defendant, not his Victim, who had been the initial aggressor, and on that basis the Defendant could not justify his use of force as self defense.

    The trial court noted that Correa had yelled through the phone to “come on over and take on a real man,” and then later chose to greet him at the front door with a gun. He opened the door himself, enabling his Victim to gain access to the home’s vestibule. Collectively, these actions were sufficient to make Correa an aggressor in the conflict, and therefore not entitled to the legal defense of self defense.
    sometimes what we say in the heat of the fight can come back on us. I;m sure not having a jury trial was a bad choice also
