i think the issue i have with this question is that he wasnt found guilty of threatening, he was found guilty of assault. i chose the answer that suggested that a violent temper doesnt mean he is guilty of a violent crime. i can see how the right answer is considered right but not sure why i would pick that over the choice i made.

Hi @medasmx, I think the answer you chose misrepresents the attorney's argument. The attorney argues that because he has a violent character that it is more likely that he committed assault.

A states that the lawyer argues that a violent character does not necessarily indicate violent acts, which is the opposite of the lawyer's argument.
