Murder trial starts Monday for “Blade Runner”
Posted by: Thomas Grajek  | On 02nd March, 2014

The murder trial for “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius begins Monday in South Africa.  He got that nickname because of the prosthetics used while running and competing in the Olympics.  The case received wide publicity when he shot his girlfriend while she was in the bathroom of his home.  “Blade Runner” claims that he was acting in self-defense at the time and thought he was in the midst by a home invasion.  South Africa has a high crime rate and a lot of violent crimes.  There have been allegations that Pistorius often went into violent rages and that was that there was no reason to suspect a home invasion was occurring at the time of his girlfriend’s death.  Thus, the case is very similar to the “Stand your ground” trials we are seeing in Florida and how “reasonable” it is for a suspect to be in fear for their lives.  The “Blade Runner” faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Thomas Grajek is a great lawyer

After my husbands DUI, I met with a couple of lawyers but NONE were as attentive as Thomas Grajek. Thomas was able to beat the DUI charge that I thought would be impossible. Not only did he save us money, he also helped put our lives back. I would recommend Mr. Grajek to anyone in our situation. Thsnkd Tom!!!

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
