TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- Matthew Hibbard, the Jack Didley's bouncer convicted of assaulting Ben Ensign, said he plans to appeal his criminal conviction. Ensign was left with life-altering injuries after he was tossed out of a Kennewick nightclub.
Hibbard said he couldn't afford an attorney and asked the court to appoint one for him.
His previous attorney will remain as Hibbard's council for the restitution case filed by the victim.
Video surveillance convicted Hibbard of 3rd degree assault back in March. Jurors couldn't deny the shots of him tossing Ben Ensign on his head last Fourth of July. Hibbard was sentenced to a year in jail with work release.
