Death at a Minneapolis Bar Shows Need for Skilled Criminal Lawyer

When criminals attack, sometimes victims fight back. But in the case of a Minneapolis bar bouncer who was attacked with a knife, it could lead to a murder charge.

One example comes from a 2010 MPR report. The city's 28th homicide of the year occurred when a bouncer at Grumpy's bar in Minneapolis was attacked by a knife-wielding man outside the front door. He suffered cuts before finally, unable to disarm the man or fend him off, the bouncer shot him dead. He had a legal, licensed gun and a permit to carry it concealed.

Despite the obvious threat to his life, the Hennepin County Attorney's office told MPR they are contemplating whether to charge the bouncer with homicide!

There's no more serious situation a person can find themselves in than to be charged with murder. Your freedom could be at risk.

The charges can vary greatly, so skilled representation by an attorney with experience in Minnesota criminal law is vital to make sure your rights are protected. If you are arrested for a serious felony crime, it's important that you contact a qualified attorney immediately.
