Jury Convicts Litchfield Man of Felonious Assault

A jury in Judge Collier's courtroom convicted Aaron A. Gatt, 21, of Vandermark Road in Litchfield Township of one count of Felonious Assault, a second degree felony. The indictment alleged that Mr. Gatt committed the assault on September 19, 2009. The jury returned its verdict on September 22, 2010, following a two day jury trial.

Although Mr. Gatt argued that he only acted in self-defense and that he was only trying to defend his father's property from a trespasser, the jury rejected both affirmative defenses. On Monday, September 27, 2010, Judge Collier sentenced Mr. Gatt to five years in prison.
