“The amount of contact they have with clinicians and support staff is much, much higher than anyone in community mental health would get,” said Katrina Bennett, clinical director of criminally insane patients at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare. Cascadia provides outpatient mental health care to ab people a year in the Portland area. Because most people are responsible for their intoxication, and the law generally holds that those who voluntarily put themselves in a condition in which they have little or no control over their actions must be held to have intended whatever consequences ensue. The defendant was not found to have been legally insane at the time of the crime.

Criminal Law Essay on Insanity The defences of insanity, substantial impairment by abnormality of mind and automatism play a vital role in avoiding criminal liability. Principally, the defences reflect the idea that intellectually challenged individuals should not be penalised but rather treated of their mental impairment. Criminally Insane Law and Legal Definition Not guilty by reason of insanity is a plea by a criminal defendant who admits the criminal act, but claims he/she was so mentally disturbed at the time of the crime that he/she lacked the mental capacity necessary to commit a crime.
