Mental Health Defenses
Defending the Mentally Ill - Competency - Insanity - Mental Commitments
Criminal offenses committed by people who suffer from mental illness poses a unique challenge. Law enforcement officers often lack training to recognize when a person is mentally ill, and prosecutors' hands are often tied because people seldom care that a crime was the result of mental illness. In a civilized society however, the mentally ill shouldn't be imprisoned if they lack the mental capacity to conform their behavior to the law. They should be treated for their illness.
