Bridgeport, Connecticut resident Jeffrey Sumpter is heading to jail for 18 months for defending himself from three attackers while he was at work in Norwalk.  What is so remarkable about this case is that the judge believed Sumpter's version of events, but still sent him away to jail due to the technicalities of a law requiring him to retreat while being beaten by three attackers.  

Gov. Malloy: the court denied Mr. Sumpter's right to defend himself, but you can defend him from a year and a half in jail.  Please pardon Jeffrey Sumpter.
