Neighborly feud results in assault charges against Chicago man

The bond between neighbors is one of the things that makes Chicago such a great place to live. Ties with neighbors create a sense of community and can greatly enrich the quality of a person’s life.

Just the opposite is true for strained neighborly relationships. A toxic relationship with a neighbor can be a minor annoyance, at best, or result in serious criminal charges.

One Chicago man was recently convicted of aggravated battery after a feud with his neighbors turned violent. The man was sentenced after a bench trial and was ordered to serve two years of intensive probation.

An appeals court recently upheld the man’s conviction, which he challenged based on the sufficiency of the evidence.

The trial documents show that the incident which led to the man’s charges occured during the early morning hourys of July 13, 2009 on the 10800 block of South Homan Avenue in Chicago.

That evening the man hosted a BBQ with several friends. He and his friends were sitting outside when his next door neighbor pulled up next door.

Accounts differ drastically regarding what happened next. We will discuss the details of this case in our next post.
