Man Acquitted with Gay Panic Defense

A Chicago man who killed his neighbor by stabbing him with a replica dagger 61 times was acquitted of first-degree murder on Friday.

Joseph Biedermann fatally stabbed his neighbor Terrance Hauser last year, and Biedermann’s attorney Sam Adam Jr. argued that his client was acting in self-defense, saying Hauser had threatened him with unwanted sexual advances.

According to a police report, both men were drunk at the time of the attack, and Biedermann claimed that Hauser had threatened him physically.

Adam Jr. successfully represented R&B singer R. Kelly in his 2008 trial on child pornography charges. He also represents ex-governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich.
