Harold Fish to Get New Trial

I found this on The Great One’s (Massad Ayoob for those of you not in the know) blog…


Harold Fish is the man who had the bad luck to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was out walking a trail and was attacked by a man and two dogs. Mr. Fish did what he had to do and shot the dogs and the man. He was told by the police afterwards that he didn’t have anything to worry about since it was obviously a self defense shooting.

Fast forward to after the following trail. Mr. Fish was found guilty of murder. Fortunately the murder conviction has been overturned and he is getting a retrial.
