Man Punches Lawyer in the Face After 45 Year Sentence Handed Down

A lawyer in Cleveland, Ohio, was hospitalized after being punched in the face by a client who was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Deputies took down David Chislton after the 42-year-old struck lawyer Aaron Brockler in the face with both of fists in handcuffs after the sentence was handed down. Brockler was taken out of the courtroom on a stretcher and is believed to have suffered a concussion and sustained minor injuries to his face. 

Chislton was originally arrested in 2017 for a police standoff he had after pistol-whipping his girlfriend and set his apartment complex on fire.
