Chapter 10 of the text discusses Battered Child Syndrome as a defense. Given the information in the video, do you believe that the Battered Child Syndrome is appropriate in this case? While the defendant is an adult, do you think abuse as a child could be used as a legal defense for a 24 year old? How applicable is the immediacy requirement to this case (hint: re-read Chapter 10 on Battered Child Syndrome to ensure full understanding of the immediacy requirement). Explain your responses and be sure to tie your discussions back to course readings/content.
