Looking at how he habitually feels like defending himself is the best legal representation he can have, and also how he feels he has never done anything wrong, that him explaining the situation from his point of view will most assuredly avoid consequences, do you honestly think jonny boy would plead out?Good to see. Of course he's going to plead out and without a criminal or violent history, he won't be likely to see any jail time but will get a decent fine and suspended sentence, probably several dozen community service hours too.
Of course, if he gets charged with assaulting anyone else after said conviction, well then the suspended sentence gets added on to whatever he gets for the next assault, so this will either put a muzzle on his bulldog mouth and free-flying hands, or else he's stupid enough to think the troonshield will STILL keep him out of jail after convictions for weapons and assault, and learns the truth to his sorrow. Either result makes me grin.
I think that fat narcassistic fuck will try to fight it, without legal counsel as he has done every time he has been before court. The taser charge is honestly a more serious charge I imagine. One is a banned weapon, the other is him throwing a single punch. Did he plead guilty to the weapons charges, even though its obvious he did it? I don't recall that being the case, and while its obvious he is guilty of hitting the reporter, just as guilty as he is of the weapons charges. I do not see him getting a lawyer, and I do not see him taking a plea deal.
