The Castle Doctrine

April 1, 2012 Posted in Blog Post

The recently enacted Castle Doctrine defines “a person’s right to use deadly or substantial force against someone who unlawfully and forcibly” enters their home, vehicle or business.

Recently, Attorney Charles Blumenfield was interviewed by the local Fox TV outlet regarding the Castle Doctrine.  During the interview (which can be viewed as part of this news report), Attorney Blumenfield noted that while the Castle Doctrine presented serious questions, a prosecutor will often have difficulty issuing a charge against a homeowner who uses deadly force.
