Florida's stand your ground Law
Fire News

Arthur Hayhoe

PASCO COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- Some say Florida's "stand your ground" law is being abused in the legal system.

Max Horn spent the past two years in jail for shooting Joseph Martell during the Chasco Fiesta in New Port Richey in 2008.

Horn said he felt threatened before he started shooting. A jury found him not guilty Thursday.

His defense lawyer, Keith Hammond, believes the jury made the right call.

"We think we got a great result," Hammond said. "We think we got a fair result."

The law states that people have no duty to retreat and have a right to use force if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm.

Arthur Hayhoe, with Floridians to Stop Gun Violence, said there have been five other Pasco County cases dismissed because of the law.

"You're going to have more shootings, more of this and it's terrible," Hayhoe said. "I think everyone feels this law needs to (get) back to the legislature but I don't think that'll happen. That's why we're looking for a way to elevate one of these cases to the Supreme Court."

Hammond said he doesn't think the law needs to be changed.

"I think the stand your ground law appears to be written in a manner that's acceptable (if) you're attacked on the streets," he said. "Why shouldn't you be able to defend yourself?"
