Perfect Defense Law and Legal Definition

Perfect defense is a defense that meets all legal requirements and results the full acquittal of the accused. A defense is a denial, or answer or plea in opposition to the truth or validity of a claim by a plaintiff. For example a perfect self-defense meets all of the generally accepted legal conditions for such a claim to be valid. It is the use of force by one who accurately appraises the necessity and the amount of force to repel an attack.
