Client found NOT GUILTY in gun case

The new law in Wisconsin which allows our citizens to carry a firearm has caused the lines on what citizens can and can't do with a firearm to become blurry.

Police were dispatched to a 911 call of a man with a gun. The complaining witness informed dispatch that the vehicle they had just passed had a driver in it who threatened them with a gun. 

The police stopped the client at his home and he acknowledged that there was an incident on the road and that he did display a firearm. The officer testified that the client told him that he showed the gun to the couple in the other vehicle "so they knew not to [mess] with him."

The client hired Chirafisi & Verhoff, and after some research, the attorneys believed the client's actions were not only justified, but not in violation of the law on carrying firearms.  The matter went to trial on June 9th and after 4 hours of deliberation, the jury found the client not guilty and the case was dismissed.
