A grand jury has recently decided not to charge an Oregon man following a criminal investigation. In this case, the man faced potential charges for felony crimes after a shooting.
Amid all of the controversy surrounding the Trayvon Martin shooting, some Oregon residents might be wondering what their own state's laws are concerning self-defense. If you feel threatened, do you have the right to use deadly force against another person? Although the recent shooting in Florida has deeply divided some communities with opposing opinions on the topic, the law is all that matters in a criminal defense case.
