Nebraska's Castle Doctrine


Nebraska's castle law states that any force used must be deemed necessary by the person protecting themselves. Deadly force can be used but only if the person believes that it is necessary to avoid rape, serious injury, kidnapping, or death. There is a duty to retreat when the person is not at their home or place of work.
