In July, DC criminal attorney David Wooten convinced a very tough judge in D.C. Superior Court to acquit his client of two counts of assault, for an altercation that occurred at the Green Turtle restaurant outside the Verizon Center, after a Washington Capitols hockey game. Mr. Wooten’s client was on parole for a prior felony assault, and could have been sent back to prison for an additional 7 years if convicted. Upon hearing the verdict, observers in the courtroom appeared shocked. They couldn’t believe that this tough judge did not believe the 4 Government witnesses who testified as to the assault that split one young man’s eye open. But Mr. Wooten was not the least bit surprised. Justice was served.
