WHAT DOES CRIMINALLY INSANE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Insanity defense

In criminal trials, the insanity defense is the claim that the defendant is not responsible for his or her actions due to mental health problems. Exemption of the insane from full criminal punishment dates back to at least the Code of Hammurabi. There are different definitions of legal insanity, such as the M'Naghten Rules, the Durham Rule, the American Legal Institute definition, and various miscellaneous provisions. In the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the United States, use of the defense is rare; however, since the Criminal Procedure Act 1991, insanity pleas have steadily increased in the UK. Mitigating factors, including things not eligible for the insanity defense like intoxication, may lead to reduced charges or reduced sentences. The insanity defense is based on evaluations by forensic mental health professionals with the appropriate test according to the jurisdiction. Their testimony guides the jury, but they are not allowed to testify to the accused's criminal responsibility, as this is a matter for the jury to decide.
