I'm not familiar with the habits of the California tradesman, but for any homeowner residing in a state where deer hunting is a second religion, this couple's action would be fully justified. "Holding a tradesman hostage during deer hunting season" ought to receive the same widely accepted legal defense of "He deserved killing". If it doesn't exist yet, one of our court's will surely invoke a doctrine of "compelling homeowner interest" to legitimize otherwise criminal activities.

Handyman Held Hostage In Morgan Hill, Forced To Fix Home MORGAN HILL:

Two people who live in a large Morgan Hill home have been arrested on suspicion of holding a handyman hostage and forcing him to do home repairs.

Investigators said the 50-year-old victim was lured to a home on 200 block of Caldwell Court Monday morning. The sprawling 4,600 square foot home has five bedrooms and is equipped with a pool, a beach volleyball court, and a tennis court.

"He was assaulted, he was threatened with his life, and he was forced to do some work at the house," Sgt. Jose Cardoza of the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office told CBS 5.

Detectives said 36-year-old Jason DeJesus and 33-year-old Chanelle Troedson beat the handyman, threatened to kill him and forced him to fix several items in the house over a six-hour span. The repairs included a dishwasher and a broken door.
