Stand your ground before Supreme Court

Michigan's criminal justice system grants homeowners with the presumption, which can be rebutted, that they acted in self-defense if they used deadly force to stop a person who is breaking and entering their home if they believed they were threatened with imminent death or bodily harm. The state Supreme Court is reviewing a defendant's appeal that the judge should have given clear instructions to the jury in his criminal case about this stand your ground law.

Guilty plea may not end challenge to criminal law

Normally, a guilty plea usually ends a Michigan criminal case and any appeal in the criminal justice system. But, the Supreme Court is currently reviewing an appeal of a defendant who pled guilty, but is challenging the constitutionality of the underlying charges.
