Sound like a rocking party. Assault on a PO is a tough felony. Judges and Prosecutors are paid by the government. Police Officers are paid by the government. They usually protect their own. Sentences on assault on a PO are generally worse than sentences for other crimes of the same felony level - usually a fourth degree felony 6-18 months. For a defense lawyer the right to a jury trial is an important right in a case like that.
