Mental Condition Evidence without Insanity Plea

Denver Criminal Defense Attorney - Mental Conditions Matter

Evidence of someone's mental condition at trial is admissible without an insanity plea, according to a new case issued by the Colorado Supreme Court. This is significant because in many felony cases from Denver, Jefferson, and Adams County involving Theft, Burglary, or Sexual Assault, the mental state of the accused is a required element of the crime and impacts a jury's deliberations on findings of intent. Intent is also known as the mens res of the case. When a defendant accused of a serious felony case in Arapahoe, Douglas and Weld County, he often says he did not "knowingly" commit the crime, even though he admits he committed the crime. Our experienced lawyers know that the mental state of the accused is very important, particularly for people whose mental condition is not so bad that they can prove they were insane.
