In an article from August 6, 2014, Attorney Armstrong's defense case

in the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the San Diego high school
wrestling coach. The article provides discourse of both the San Diego
criminal defense attorney and prosecutor. The full article can be found
The case involves a high school wrestling coach who is accused of murder
of a one-time assistant who beat him up. After the fight, the defendant
went home to get his firearm which he then used to shoot the victim to
death. The defendant claims that the shooting was an act of self-defense
because he only pulled the trigger after his assistant said "I'm
going to kill you" and then pulled out a knife.
The prosecutor believes that the defendant should be convicted of first-degree
murder, but the defense attorney, Kerry Armstrong, states that the shooting
was justifiable self-defense. Defense Attorney Armstrong's position,
as discussed in the article, is that the defendant acted in a reasonable
manner out of fear that the victim was going to kill him.
Defense attorney Kerry Armstrong from our firm, The Law Offices of Kerry
L. Armstrong, stands firm in his position within the case. Although there
is evidence against the defendant, Armstrong clearly states that his actions
were justified and says that a reasonable person would have taken the
same action. Attorney Armstrong also points out the past behavior of the
victim who the defendant was supposedly taking self-defense against.
Attorney Kerry Armstrong's influence in this case will have a significant
impact on the sentencing of the high school coach. He puts his experience
and knowledge to work to defend the freedom of the defendant within this
case that is covered by CBS8. In the same manner, Attorney Armstrong can
provide you with defense if you are facing a criminal charge.
