Arizona Rule 32
Arizona Criminal Attorney David Cantor discusses Post Conviction Relief Petition for Justification and recent changes to the Arizona Rule 32 Law. This is an important issue for anyone involved in a case where something like self defense was involved in a violent crime. In Arizona prior to 2006 is was the burden of the defendant to prove they had justification of self defense. After 2006 the burden was shifted to the state to prove that there was no justification for self defense.
