S.F. attorney, intern defended selves in killing, lawyer insists

Posted By Administration, Friday, September 18, 2015

A San Francisco tenants’ rights attorney and his intern, who stand accused of murdering a man on a gritty street near downtown after a night of drinking, will argue that they acted in self-defense against a group of men wielding weapons, a lawyer for the 21-year-old intern said Thursday.

Pascal Krummenacher, the Swiss intern, and Carlos Argueta, a 31-year-old staff attorney at the Eviction Defense Collaborative, have been charged with murder, robbery and possession of stolen property in the death of 61-year-oldJames Thomas. Argueta also faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Lewis Romero, who is representing Krummenacher and has viewed surveillance footage that captured most of the Sept. 3 confrontation, said it arose from a dispute over a messenger bag that may or may not have been stolen from Argueta.
