    From the sounds of the article, the victim and the attacker both had previous criminal charges/convictions against them. I'm somewhat surprised it well this well for the victim. Attorneys have a way of making the good guy look bad if it pays. Glad to see due process work the way it was intended for once.

    The defender's criminal past is probably WHY he was charged in the first place. In my county and general region, in Texas, it is unlikely a defender with a clean past would have been charged in the first place, in my opinion.

    I am glad it worked out OK for the defender. FWIW, I am almost the same age as the defender, have a minor infirmity in my formerly "strong" arm, and am a bicyclist.

    Man, you just really gotta be a scumbag when your best friend gives the statements this guy did against the deceased.

    Excellent call by the judge.

    All turned out well!

    Would anyone from FL like to expand on this, before I insert my foot in mouth? What does "adjudication" mean, and how did someone with this type of criminal past obtain a firearm, much less a CCW?

    you can have a ccw with a felony beef in the past in florida? did I miss something here?

    although Mr. P seems justified in using lethal force, why put oneself in such a situation? even police officers are at risk when they do a traffic stop; does one think that a civilian would get better respect or treatment?

    I do wish that we have the castle doctrine in CT; we still have to make the effort to "RETREAT". yut.

    Withholding adjudication means the court failed to make a judgment, yes? Perhaps an attorney could explain that one.

    What does "adjudication" mean
    a judicial decision or sentence

    Apparently it means that no decision was handed down.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    I am not an attorney and just my opinion...

    I'm guessing that the other party was at least equally to blame for the altercation and the felony was "set aside". While "No Contest" is essentially the same thing as pleading guilty, it's my understanding that there are some administrative differences from being convicted.

    Just my non-lawyer take on the whole thing.

    I'm sure if he had obtained his CCW under fraudulent circumstances, the judge wouldn't have dropped the charges on this latest incident!

    Bear in mind... Florida is an exceedingly "gun friendly" State! I know those who live there appreciate it too!
