This checklist has been adapted from the “Drug-Induced Homicide Defense Toolkit” by Beety, et al., and the University of North Carolina School of Government blog post, “Defending Death by Distribution Cases”, by Phil Dixon. This checklist is meant to help criminal defense attorneys identify possible defenses to these new North Carolina DIH laws, but we do strongly recommend consulting the “Drug-Induced Homicide Defense Toolkit” and “Defending Death by Distribution Cases” for more in-depth analysis of the defenses presented here.
