SEATTLE (AP) - A judge has ordered the state to pay a 22-year-old man the money his family spent on successfully defending him in a case in which he stabbed another University of Washington student during a fight last year.

Jarred Ha was found not guilty of assault with a deadly weapon by a King County Superior Court jury in January for stabbing Graham Harper. He was also found not guilty of punching a woman in the face.

The jury additionally ruled Ha acted in self-defense, which allowed him in part to seek reimbursement of his legal costs.

The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/QNG9m3 ) Ha’s family spent just over $45,000 on attorneys, investigators and transcribing interviews.
