Battered spouse syndrome

Posted by John P. Rutkowski | Dec 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

Battered-spouse syndrome evidence was not admissible where defendant claimed shooting was accident rather than self-defense. The Trial court did not err in excluding BSS evidence; even if trial court erred in excluding evidence, error was harmless because evidence had no bearing on whether defendant's husband was shot as result of intentional or accidental discharge of gun.
