Arizona Court of Appeals sends self-defense case back to trial. On tonight's Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi describes the proceedings that originally sentenced Harold Fish of Arizona to 10 years in prison for protecting himself. Fish was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Grant Kuenzli, who reportedly attacked Fish after an altercation involving Kuenzli's vicious dogs. Although the investigating detective found that Fish acted in self-defense, and ample documentation was available on both Kuenzli's psychological problems and the dogs' history of aggressive behavior, Fish was found guilty. Now the state court of appeals has ruled that the case be tried again, this time with all relevant evidence available to the jury.
