People v. Brown

Mr. Brown was charged with Murder in connection with the shooting death of his daughter’s boyfriend, after they had a dispute in the lobby of his residence. Mr. Brown fired a single shot in Self-Defense after his daughter’s boyfriend angrily approached him while swinging his fists at Mr. Brown and grabbing for his gun. Despite these facts, the Judge would not permit Mr. Jackson to argue that Mr. Brown acted in Self-Defense. The Jury found Mr. Brown Not Guilty of Murder, but still convicted him of Manslaughter. In speaking with the Jury, Mr. Jackson realized they were troubled that the Judge would not allow them to consider that Mr. Brown was defending himself. On appeal, the Appellate Court reversed Mr. Brown’s conviction, ruling that the Jury should have been permitted to consider that Mr. Brown was defending himself.
