Immunity from civil action after a shooting?
I have wondered about some of these cases where a DA charges someone involved in a self-defense shooting and the defendant is found innocent or charges are later dropped. In Oklahoma the law says your are immune from civil action if the court finds you immune for prosecution on the shooting.
In these cases where the court id not find you immune to prosecution and charges you with murder does this negate the immunity on the civil matter even if you are found to be not guilty?
F. A person who uses force, as permitted pursuant to the provisions of subsections B and D of this section, is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes charging or prosecuting the defendant.
G. A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force, but the law enforcement agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.
H. The court shall award reasonable attorney fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection F of this section.
