State v. Clonts, 254 N.C.App. 95, 802 S.E.2d 531 (Jun. 20, 2017)

aff'd on other grounds, 371 N.C. 191, 813 S.E.2d 796 (Jun. 8, 2018)

The trial court did not err by failing to instruct the jury on imperfect self-defense and imperfect defense of others where the defendant did not request that the trial court give any instruction on imperfect self-defense or imperfect defense of others. In fact, when the State indicated that it believed that these defenses were not legally available to the defendant, defense counsel agreed with the State. The defendant cannot show prejudice from invited error.
