I know my client, Cinderella,made killed her step mother. She has been abused by her step mother for years. She's traumatized.
Explain what exactly happened the day of March 29th.
Cinderella has just been accused of killing her step mother. Judge Robins and Attorney Odhiambo are having a trial.
Well my step mother has been abusing me since I was little. She told me she hates me and I took a knife and continuously stabbed her.
Attorney Odhiambo is trying to make the case for Cinderella. Cinderella's justification is insanity because of the trauma she underwent.
Your Honor, my client has nightmares of killing her family. She acts on impulse and does not know right from wrong.
Judge Robins wants an explanation of the case to understand the facts.
I understand. I am sending Ms. Cinderella to a mental institution to receive help. Case dismissed.
Cinderella is explaining the trauma she has been going through her whole life with her step mother.
Insanity is best defined as mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.
Insanity is her best defense because she cannot understand her wrong doing and acts on impulse. The best treatment for her is a mental institution because the law protects the public by assuring incarceration of mentally ill people that still pose a threat to society.
