On the evening of November 27, 2003, the victim, Thomas Singhose, was at the home of

Genie Gibbons and Mark Gailey in Springfield, Oregon. At around 10:00 p.m., four men
came to the house. The four men were defendant, Joe Emrich, Delano Oscar, and Tommy
Adams. At the time the four men came to the house, Singhose was sleeping on the couch, and
the other persons were in the back bedrooms. When the four men knocked on the door,
Gibbons answered it and led them directly into her bedroom. Singhose, who had awakened at
the sound of the knock, said nothing to the men, and the men, although they saw him, said
nothing to him. After a few minutes, the four men left Gibbons's bedroom, where Gibbons
remained. The men walked toward Singhose with Oscar in the lead. According to Singhose,
Oscar told Singhose that he needed to leave. Singhose reached for his shoes and began to get
up. Oscar punched him four times on his face. Singhose saw Adams holding a club or a stick.
Singhose pushed Oscar away and tried to leave by the front door. Oscar blocked his way, and
someone pulled Singhose back into the room.

The four men, including defendant, then assaulted Singhose. He testified that he was
subjected to a rain of blows. He was stabbed at least twice and hit on the top of his head with
nunchakus. He was also hit in the face by something really hard, and he thought it could have
been a wooden stick or the nunchakus. Singhose did not know who specifically stabbed him
or hit him with the nunchakus. Although he had no direct recollection of specific blows by
defendant, Singhose testified that defendant "was right on top of me with the rest." Singhose
explained, "I'm feeling blows from this side. I look. There's [defendant] right there. That's--I
may not be able to tell you what specific blow he dealt, but a blow nonetheless."

At some point, Singhose picked up one handle of the nunchakus, which had broken at the
chain, and turned toward the door. Adams was between Singhose and the door. The other
three men were behind Singhose. Adams told Singhose that he would stab him if he did not
drop the nunchakus. Singhose, after observing blood coming out of his chest, told Adams that
he had already stabbed him at least once or twice. When the men saw his injuries, everything
stopped, and the fight was over. Singhose does not know why the four men assaulted him.

Singhose suffered serious physical injuries from the knife wounds, which punctured his lung
and diaphragm, nicked his liver, and sliced the back of his head, back, and forearm. He has
scars from those injuries. The nunchakus caused physical injury to his head.

Oscar, who pleaded guilty to assaulting Singhose, gave a slightly different account of the
assault. He testified that the four men did not discuss knifing or beating Singhose in the car on
the way over to the house. Oscar testified that, after they arrived at the house, he and Adams
went to a back bedroom and that he did not know where defendant and Emrich went. When
Oscar returned to the living room, he walked up to Singhose and punched him once on the
nose in retribution for a rumor that Singhose had spread about him. Defendant, Adams, and
Emrich were in the living room at the time. None of the other men, including defendant, knew
of Oscar's dispute with Singhose or his intent to punch him in the nose. After hitting
Singhose, Oscar turned away and began to converse with Gailey. During the conversation, a
commotion broke out, and Oscar turned around to see that Adams had Singhose by his shirt
collar and was bending him over and swinging nunchakus to the top of his head. Defendant
was on top of Singhose as he was bent over. Emrich was stabbing Singhose. All of this was
happening at about the same time. Singhose was trying to get to the door with one-half of the
broken nunchakus in his hand. Oscar did not remember defendant specifically hitting
Singhose, as he was concentrating on the two men who were holding the weapons. Oscar
never saw a weapon in defendant's hands. According to Oscar, he pulled the three men off
Singhose and pushed Singhose out the door.

Defendant testified at length at trial. He denied ever hitting or kicking Singhose. Defendant
claimed that his only action in the melee was to attempt to rescue a dog and a young man who
were in harm's way due to the others assaulting Singhose.
