A perfect scenario for OC. After which the cane would be very effective.
I'm thinking that if I am going to threaten someone with a knife, by display, I might as well do same with a gun, both being potential assault with a deadly weapon---though not in this circumstance.
I have a hunch the story is fiction, but still --either way-- a good scenario.
There is a reason that (here at least) most felonious attacks on the elderly carry additional jail time. So, our big guy, probably isn't going to be seeing his spoiled brat all that much the next few years. Should help the kid. With some luck, mamma will grow up real fast when she finds she has to: a) live by herself; b) raise kid by herself; c) get a job; d) sell house to pay for futile defense against the charges before big boy goes to big house. With any real luck, the LEOs will find that there were drugs in that
fancy truck. Mom will go to jail too. Kid will go to foster home. Just maybe, there will be a slim chance of the little girl then growing up somewhat "normal."
