When a Sandy-area man used a sports trophy to assault the new boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend, he landed himself in jail and is now facing a charge of, among other things, attempted first-degree assault.
According to the report in The Oregonian, Brandon Triplett, 33, of Sandy, started arguing with a man named Christopher Clevenger, 32, also of Sandy, about Triplett’s ex-girlfriend, Janica Parham. Police were called at around 2 a.m. Monday morning to intervene, but by the time they arrived, Triplett had already left. But the night’s events weren’t over.
Sometime after 4 a.m., a man identified as Triplett entered Parham’s home in the 53000 block of East Marmot Road, just outside Sandy. As Clevenger slept, Triplett allegedly hit him over the head with a sports trophy. Triplett was arrested a short time later.
We would like to wish Christopher Clevenger a quick recovery from his injuries after this shocking attack.
Intentional assault cases can be complicated. Besides criminal charges, the assailant can also be held accountable in a personal injury case. Victims of assault may also be entitled to compensation under personal injury law, so it is important to understand your rights in this situation.
Even if the person who assaulted you cannot pay, sometimes their insurance company will. You might be entitled to economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. A skilled Oregon assault attorney can investigate this for you, and handle your case, so you can focus on healing and recovery.
