Columbus Short, from TV show ‘Scandal’ infamy knocked a victim out, bloodied the victim and broke the victim’s nose. As an Annapolis Criminal Defense attorney, I handle cases such as these. Columbus recently pled no contest to felony assault and avoided jail time. He has a long three year probation, 60 full days of community labor and he has to pay restitution money to the victim. If you get involved or are accused of the crime of assault, it is best to call an Annapolis Assault attorney as soon as possible. There are many things that need to be done to protect your rights.
