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 Stand your ground and self defense are no longer applicable for several reasons.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.

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.
I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
