Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity is a defence that most killers hope and dream of. It is a defence that can sometimes essentially let a killer get away with murder. If found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity, a killer is sent to a psychiatric hospital where they remain until they are considered sane in the eyes of the law whether that be one year or 40 years. It is the defence that stirs the most controversy because of the struggle to align the law with psychiatric knowledge. In 2012, an insanity defence led to the state of Oklahoma updating their definition of insanity.
