Nebraska Revised Statute 28-1415

Chapter 28 Section 1415


Justification in property crimes.

Conduct involving the appropriation, seizure or destruction of, damage to, intrusion on or interference with property is justifiable under circumstances which would establish a defense of privilege in a civil action based thereon, unless:

(1) Sections 28-1406 to 28-1416 or the law defining the offense deals with the specific situation involved; or

(2) A legislative purpose to exclude the justification claimed otherwise plainly appears.
