Imperfect Self Defense Not Applicable To Shooting At Inhabited House Or Occupied Vehicle
September 7th, 2015

Self Defense and defense of others is applicable to a charge under PC § 246 alleging that the defendant shot at an inhabited house or occupied vehicle. (See CC 965, Bench Notes [judge has a sua sponte duty to instruct].)  However, unreasonable self defense is not applicable. (People v. Rodarte (2014) 223 Cal. App. 4th 1158, 1171.)
