CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming judge has dismissed the case against a jail inmate who was charged with aiding and abetting his brother’s attack on another inmate.

KTWO-AM reports (bit.ly/2spB6gf) the attorney for 29-year-old Duane Jackson successfully argued that his client was defending his brother. Circuit Court Judge Denise Nau dismissed the case Friday.

Court records say surveillance video from the June 9 incident shows 28-year-old Victor Jackson charging another inmate and choking him on the floor while Duane Jackson acts as a barrier between his brother and the other inmates.

Victor Jackson is charged with attempted first-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in court on July 12. He was jailed awaiting trial for first-degree sexual assault, strangulation and domestic battery.

Duane Jackson is jailed awaiting sentencing for first-degree sexual assault of a minor.
