What do I need to know about the insanity defense?

Due in part to its popularity in crime fiction and on the big screen, many people in Ohio think of the insanity defense as a foolproof tactic when facing criminal charges. Unfortunately, this is far from true. The insanity defense is rarely used in court and its success rate is low. According to a Science Direct article, only 1 in every 1000 cases ever involve the insanity plea worldwide, with a success rate that varies from 25% to 50%.

What is a peremptory challenge?

A jury will determine whether the evidence against you is sufficient to convict you of whatever you are charged with. However, at the stage of jury selection, your attorney does have a say in who ends up on the jury through peremptory challenges.
