Case Study: Petty v. State



This case study looks at the details of a gun possession charge, where the defendant claimed he needed the gun for self-defense and where he claims a police officer indicated that he was allowed to have the gun. The presentation goes through the background criminal law concepts and focuses on sufficiency of the evidence, along with the defenses of entrapment, mistake and self-defense. Also covered is a sentencing procedure issue raised by the defense.
