Music hi this is Mike Haber thank you for asking me what is the difference between self-defense and stand your ground there are three main differences between self-defense and syg stand your ground is decided by a judge self-defense is determined by a jury stand your ground is a pre-trial motion it seeks statutory immunity from prosecution self-defense is an affirmative defense to a criminal charge and it is only raised during a trial in stand your ground you have no duty to retreat before you use force but in self-defense there usually is a duty to retreat in its most basic form the main difference between syg and self defense is that stand your ground effectively kills the state's case before it ever gets to a jury whereas with self-defense you rely upon a jury to buy what you're selling in either event it's your life on the line and you need an experienced attorney working for you I thank you for your question I appreciate your having asked it and I invite you to ask me more please remember at Michael a Haber PA it's all about reasonable doubt Music Applause you
