“Kyle’s Law” Gains Steam — Which State Will Be First To Protect Against Politically-Motivated Prosecutions Of Self-Defense?

Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted by a jury of all charges.

But the shameful efforts of the prosecution have many calling for a new law — “Kyle’s Law.”

“Kyle’s Law” would levy a serious penalty on prosecutors who bring politically-motivated prosecutions in self-defense cases.

Under “Kyle’s Law,” juries in self-defense cases would be asked if they believed the prosecution “failed to disprove self-defense by a majority of the evidence?”

If the answer is “Yes,” then the “defendant is immediately entitled to compensation.”

Compensation would be paid for by the state and prosecutor personally.

From Law Of Self Defense:

Hey folks, I’m Attorney Andrew Branca, for Law of Self Defense, and I’d like to take just a moment to talk with you about Kyle’s Law, our proposed law for stopping politically motivated prosecutions of self-defense.

Too often, rogue prosecutors bring felony criminal charges against people who were clearly doing nothing more than defending themselves, their families, or others from violent criminal attack.

What I propose is that in every self-defense case the jury instruction on self-defense includes a special question to the jury–if you the jury are acquitting this defendant on the grounds of self-defense, do you also find that the prosecution failed to disprove self-defense by a majority of the evidence?

If the jury agrees the prosecution failed to meet even this very low threshold, the defendant is immediately entitled to compensation for any losses resulting from this unfounded prosecution.

The law is gaining support.
