What was the strategy of agreeing to have the case heard by a judge instead of a jury trial? Usually, that happens when the facts are so clear as to be assured of an acquittal.  They seemed clear, but the judge found him guilty on all counts.

A judge found Michael Strickland, 37, guilty Friday on ten counts of unlawful use of a firearm, 10 counts of menacing and the charge of disorderly conduct.

Strickland was arrested during a rally in downtown Portland on July 7, 2016.
