Client Found Not Guilty of Criminal Threatening with A Handgun

The client was accused of drawing a firearm, a 9 mm. handgun, at a Portsmouth bar and threatening a bouncer.  If convicted of either of the two felony charges he was charged with, the client faced a possible 7 1/2 – 15 year sentence in prison, fines, and the loss of his right to own and carry a firearm.

Attorney Richard Samdperil successfully argued that the client was innocent of the accusations.  The jury agreed, and the client was found not guilty.
