Self-defense; jury instructions
Joseph Gayden appeals from a judgment of conviction entered following a jury trial in which he was found guilty of substantial battery with use of a dangerous weapon, and from an order denying his postconviction motion. Gayden argues that the trial court erroneously exercised its discretion when it: (1) improperly instructed the jury on the use of self-defense; and (2) imposed restitution. For the reasons which follow, we disagree with Gayden and affirm the trial court. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
