Local news: Serial sexual assaulter accidentally killed, 'killer' acquitted

Backstory:  Drunk jerk in a bar starts grabbing several different women's breasts.  Drunk dude is leaving, when one of the victim's husbands comes back from the restroom, learns what happened, and follows the drunk sexual assaulter out the door and shoves drunk assaulter.

The sexual assaulter falls, hits his head and dies.

Local DA files charges on the husband that did the shoving. 

Jury finds the 'shoving husband' not guilty.

Texas law DOES authorize deadly force for citizens to prevent sexual assault.  It does authorize deadly force to prevent escape of someone stealing property (yes, it does).  Texas law does not SPECIFIALLY cover using deadly force to prevent a sexual assaulter from escaping.

Thoughts?

    Glad the judge acquitted him. Guess the boob grabber wasn't able to grab something shaped like a teat to break his fall..........................he was probably just drunk, but it was a freak accident he died not intentional. A good ole fashioned Texas ass-whupping  should have sufficed.

    No jury the video said the judge decided after he waived his right to a jury trial.

    Written law is never perfect.  That is why we have trials where the verdict is handed down by jury "of your peers" so a jury can "bend" the law in the right direction for one of their own, a concept many in the professional legal profession and judges have tried to kill over the years.  In this case the man's peers decided he was not guilty of the charged crime.  The system worked as originally designed.  Yay...

    Drunk molester must have gone over backwards and cracked his melon on the pavement. Life's tough; if you're gonna be a molester then best wear a helmet.

    I could give two craps about the deceased, but the shoving hubby wasn't protecting anybody and wasn't looking to detain a fleeing criminal, he was looking to throw down an ass whipping.  Should he be charged with murder?   No... but, I wouldn't feel outrage if he had been charged with something.  I'd look at it as two eh holes had to pay the price for being themselves.

    Somebody gropes your wife and your not going to be angry? You would have no thought about confronting the violator?

    OP said jury found him no guilty.  Story doesn’t give trial details just judge comments.  Regardless it was the right call.
