WFAE's Public Conversations Series - Understanding Stand Your Ground 

When: Wed., May 16, 7 p.m. 2012
Phone: 704-549-9323
Price: Free; reservations requested
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, how would a similar case be handled in North Carolina? The state does have deadly force laws on the books, known as the Castle Doctrine, and last December the law was expanded beyond a person's home. WFAE is hosting a panel discussion and community forum to address the intent, application and interpretation of "Stand Your Ground" laws. The conversation will focus on North Carolina law with regard to the use of defensive or deadly force by individuals.
