    "Legal Jeopardy of any kind"

    In RCW 9A.16.110, what does that phrase mean? Does it include civil immunity?

    RCW 9A.16.110
    Defending against violent crime Reimbursement.

    (1) No person in the state shall be placed in legal jeopardy of any kind whatsoever for protecting by any reasonable means necessary, himself or herself, his or her family, or his or her real or personal property, or for coming to the aid of another who is in imminent danger of or the victim of assault, robbery, kidnapping, arson, burglary, rape, murder, or any other violent crime as defined in RCW 9.94A.030.

    This article pretty much sums it up, from what I can tell.

    Thing is it's up to the jury whether or not you were acting in self defense.
    But what it does mean, from my understanding, is if found not guilty by self defense in court, you can't have a "civil murder trial" like OJ or whoever.
