Instructions and Help about Why Form 2220 Text

Music, hi! This is Mike Haber. Thank you for asking me about the difference between self-defense and stand your ground. There are three main differences between the two. Firstly, stand your ground is decided by a judge, whereas self-defense is determined by a jury. Secondly, stand your ground is a pre-trial motion seeking statutory immunity from prosecution, while self-defense is an affirmative defense raised during a trial. Thirdly, in stand your ground, there is no duty to retreat before using force, whereas in self-defense, there usually is a duty to retreat. In its simplest form, the main difference between stand your ground and self-defense is that stand your ground effectively ends the state's case before it reaches a jury, while self-defense relies on convincing a jury to believe your argument. Regardless of the approach, your life is at stake, and it is important to have an experienced attorney representing you. I appreciate your question and invite you to ask me more. Please remember, at Michael A. Haber PA, we prioritize reasonable doubt in all cases. Thank you.
