[T]hen one day this person breaks into my house ... he continues to do this, he assaults my daughter, he threatens me, I protect myself. [N]o one is injured in this whole thing, and I'm going to prison. ... And again, with all respect to [the court], I would expect this from the former Soviet Union, not the United States."
