The Bretherick Case explained by Andrew Branca

If Andrew ever bills me for me abusing his site, I am gonna be in deep you-know-what.
It is gonna be a long post so, make time to read it. Knowing the law is as important as doing an emergency reload.

I should note that although I certainly would agree that this is a legal issue worth of consideration and decision by the Florida Supreme Court, it’s difficult to see how Jared Bretherick will benefit regardless of the outcome on the issue of who bears the burden of proof.  While he may–may–be able to sustain a reasonable doubt as to whether his conduct was lawful self-defense at trial, on the facts before us I simply do not see any reasonable argument to be made that it was more likely than not that his conduct was lawful self-defense.

As always, if you’re going to be prepared to use a firearm in self-defense, know the law.

    I recommend a good Chianti. But pace yourself. 🙂

  2. I bought the book, and these posts at Legal Insurrection are a great way to reinforce the lessons on how not to end up in prison if you ever need to defend yourself.
