Who Carries The Burden Of Proof For Self-Defense?

Many criminal cases may rely, in whole or in part, on testimony that could include conflicting accounts of what may have occurred. So-called, “he said-she said,” disputes may be part of the evidence that juries must weigh. However, there are other aspects to a criminal trial that a strong defense lawyer knows how to address. Many people know that the prosecution has the burden to prove every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. This burden helps to ensure, not only a fair trial, but also to avoid our justice system from becoming some form of a kangaroo court.
