Inside CCW Safe Podcast: Episode 18- Critical Phases feat. Don West, Part II

Listen to the “Inside CCW Safe” Podcast

Episode 18: Critical Phases feat. Don West, Pt. II

Happy New Year!  Today Mike and Stan are back with Don West to continue talking about the critical phases of a lethal self defense case.

The three give a short welcome and background, then get into talking about the critical phases of a lethal self defense case from the actual event through the filing of charges and the bail hearing, if you are arrested.

The three talk about some things that might lessen your chance of being arrested, and talk about the initial contact with law enforcement, investigators, initial statements, and more.

The discussion continues up to the bail hearing, and the three decide to record one more podcast covering bail to trial next week.

Enjoy the show, and share it with friends and family if you like it.  We hope that everyone had a safe and happy new year, and wish the best for 2019!
