Followup OK: Attorney Shoots Client in Self Defense
The day of the shooting, Smith went to Silvernail’s house and said he needed to pick up some clothes.
“He was immediately angry and demanding,” Silvernail said.
Silvernail went to his car to get a bag of clothes when he says Smith attacked him.
“When I got out of the car with the duffle bag, I threw it to his face to get a little space, and my pistol just happened to be in the car right there between the seats,” Silvernail said.
It was a split decision, he says, when he shot Smith.
“I can’t remember being any more terrified in my whole life,” Silvernail said.
