Insanity

If a person had a mental infirmity, disease, or defect and because of this condition he did not know what he was doing, or its consequences, or although he knew what he was doing and its consequences he did not know it was wrong: he is insane.

 

A defendant who believes that what he was doing was morally right is not insane if the defendant knew what he was doing violated societal standards or was against the law.

 

All persons are presumed to be the sane. The defendant has the burden of proving the defense of insanity by clear and convincing evidence.
