When it comes to devising defense strategies for our legal clients, we understand all justification defenses. Our team of criminal defense lawyers has years of experience and the necessary resources to customize a defense strategy that works for each case. We investigate these cases fully to uncover details that will help us to get you reduced or dismissed charges.
Justification Defenses are strategies that are intended to justify the crime. These defenses are intended to demonstrate to the judge or jury why the accused individual allegedly committed the crime. The five justification defenses include:
- Necessity: This defense says that someone committed a crime to prevent a greater crime from happening.
- Defense of others: A person uses force to defend someone from violence.
- Defense of personal property: A person can be justified in to use of force to defend their property without facing liability.
- Law Enforcement: The defendant is in law enforcement and is perceived as a threat.
- Consent: The victim gave their permission to commit the crime.
