Your hypothetical client was convicted of manslaughter and spent 10 years in the USDB. During one period of time, he was transferred for a 30-day period to a Marine Corps Brig in California. While there, he called a guard an "asshole," and the guard punched him in the face. Your hypothetical client's jaw was broken and $5,000 in medical expenses were incurred.
