Loyalty to Loyalty
ok, so that (SYG) strategy was presented and the judge then decided and determined that for the juryThey tried two different approaches...the first was stand your ground and when that was disqualified because it didn't apply they tried to state that she shot "at him" but didn't hit him in an attempt to defend herself.
When stand your ground failed she was offered a plea deal for 3 years and she didn't take it. Discharging a weapon is a serious crime here and she assumed that being that it was a domestic violence situation that the the jury would side with her and it did not..
All the prosecution had to prove was that when she retreated to the garage that she could have gotten away. At the point that she grabbed the gun and went back into the residence, she was no longer in fear for her life and was acting through anger instead of fear.
It's just a sad situation. But just like I said earlier...you have to know the rules if you are going to play the game. And reckless discharge of a weapon is a no-no when possessing a concealed weapons permit.
as to the rest yea i realized dais why is nutten really you can say... its plain as day no room for explanation or mitigating circumstances
