Cochran v. Aguirre (USA)

Billy Coy Cochran was convicted by a jury of assault with a semi-automatic firearm in California, being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, criminal threats, and two counts of dissuading a witness by force or threat. These charges stem from his criminal behavior towards his mother:
In May of 2002 (Billy) came into Mrs. Cochran’s home after she refused to give his girlfriend a ride and was ‘yelling and carrying on.’ (Billy) began to throw things, including the telephone, computer and microwave and he punched two holes in the wall. He hit Mrs. Cochran on the arms, but eventually left. He returned to the home approximately 10 minutes later with a gun and threatened to kill Mrs. Cochran’s dogs. He then placed the gun to Mrs. Cochran’s forehead and threatened to kill both her and the dogs. He pulled the gun away from her forehead and as he pulled the top of the gun back a bullet fell out. Mrs. Cochran did not report the incident because he was her son and she did not want him to get in trouble; she asked him to vacate her property within two days.”
Billy now thinks he’s a woman, and he is suing the State of California. His lawsuit was dismissed with leave to refile, which he has done.
