Road Rage and Self Defense in Florida
Self Defense, Stand your ground and the castle doctrine are all hot topics at the moment. Attorney Foley shares a story, modifies the story and uses jury instructions to explain the law in this fact pattern. Learn the law educate yourself.
A short search on youtube came up with a man who entered a vehicle to hit a young man. Click here to see video.
After getting beat up he pulled the gun. Stand your ground and self defense are no longer applicable for several reasons. First, her was the aggressor and hit the young man with a punch, so he was committing the burglary battery. Second, he pulled the gun after the incident stopped after the young man stopped hitting him and were walking away. Of course we do not know why all this occurred but the man was arrested. Again, his defense team will be limited based on stand your ground, self defense, etc if this case was in Florida.
Arrested, have a criminal case in Florida. You can reach Mr. Foley at (561) 746-7076.
