Judge Clarifies Stand Your Ground Law

After the Trayvon Martin case, the state’s public safety task force is defining Florida’s controversial self-defense law at its first public hearing Tuesday before an audience made up largely of news reporters. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll will lead the task force in reviewing Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to determine whether the State’s Legislature should revise it. The law applies only to a person who is in a place where he or she has a right to be and is not committing a crime. The law, however, is unclear on determining “criminal activity” and according to some sources probably needs to be clarified.
