What is the insanity defense law in Texas?
In Texas, the insanity defense can be used to argue that a defendant should not be held responsible for a crime due to mental illness or defect. To successfully use the insanity defense in Texas, a defendant must prove that they did not understand the nature of their actions or that their mental illness prevented them from conforming to the law.
