A discussion of insanity defense reform and an argument for change in Florida
The Insanity Defense is an ever changing area of the law. The most recent proposal for changing the Insanity Defense is through the introduction of a "Guilty but Mentally Ill" verdict to supplement the verdicts of "Guilty" and "Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity." This paper discusses the history if the Insanity Defense and then proposes that Florida adopt "Guilty but Mentally Ill" for its own use.
