Your Best Defense
The first question – Did you do it? Did they get the right person? Did the police improperly focus on you allowing the real killer to remain at large?
The second question – If you had to kill the other person was there legal justification? Texas law recognizes the most basic of all human nature – the right to defend yourself, the right to survive. Texas law recognizes the right of a person to defend himself against real danger as well as apparent danger. Texas law recognizes the right for one person to defend the life of another as well as to use deadly force to prevent another’s commission of burglary of your home, sexual assault, robbery, arson, armed robbery, theft during the nighttime, criminal mischief during the nighttime, under some circumstances to prevent another from escaping with the stolen property, and aggravated kidnapping or murder.
