no they make the person more or less sane then kill him or put him away forever once he understands the nature of his acts
like that schizo guy in SK who cut off some poor guy's head on a greyhound bus. they've got him on decent meds now, and he might actually go free if he remains stable
it's one of those things that i don't entirely have a handle on. i guess that under the law, he didn't really commit the crime, it was the disease that did it. he was psychotic right out of his mind. so, as long as we can be sure that the disease is under control, we have nothing to punish him for.
its something in the amendments about that (i think the 14 or something)... but yeah its like that where i am and in missouri
you might be found not guilty by reason of insanity assuming you can prove that you were insane. but you could still be locked away for life in a mental institution..
You are one insane crackpot for writing such a retarded question. Are you planning on doing some mischief ye crazy dog ?
The good news, you are officially insane, you might not be tried but you will be confined to an asylum and medication which might be worse off than getting your bum raped in state prison.
Me best advice for you son, stay out of trouble !
That's bullshit. You get found guilty but insane and held in a nut hose until declared sane at which time you can be tried properly and sent up the river.
