CLEVELAND (WJW) -- A convicted felon who was caught on body camera punching his attorney was found not guilty in the attack.

The incident happened in February when 42-year-old David Chislton learned he would spend nearly 50 years behind bars for arson and domestic violence. He lashed out at his attorney, Aaron Brockler, who suffered a concussion and broken nose. It was captured on a Cuyahoga County Sheriff's deputy's body camera.

Chislton was acquitted of felonious assault. His new attorney argued the injuries Brockler sustained did not rise to the level of serious physical harm.
