It’s far easier than anyone understands for an innocent person to be convicted of a crime.

Surviving The Aftermath

In the aftermath of a defensive shooting, the wrong actions could lead to arrest, exorbitant legal fees, damages in a civil lawsuit and even serious time in prison. Just because the letter of the law says you’re innocent doesn’t mean that the jury will agree. Between pulling the trigger and talking to your attorney, you’ll have plenty of time to make mistakes that can’t be taken back.

This “Aftermath” guide in convenient PDF format will walk you through the basics of navigating the immediate aftermath of a self-defense shooting. It is compiled from the advice of experts who know all sides of the process—training, law enforcement, the legal system and the point of view of the shooter.
