"And in closing, your honor, I would like to just say this. Demons are on trail here, not my client."
Oh boy is right. Next up, the TV told me to kill them all defense.

I used to work for a very devout evangelical Christian.

He told hilarious stories about his kid.

On one occasion, having done something really out of line, and being asked why he had done such a thing, the child said, "I think the evil spirit told me to."

To which my boss replied, "Eddie, 'the devil made me do it' is not an acceptable defense in this family."

That was funny.

Thinking 'the devil made me do it' is a defense in court is just sad and frightening.

(This was the same child who was once pursued through Oakland Airport by the National Guard. His childhood was legend.)

If he really was suffering from untreated psychosis it should be taken into consideration.

That said, this is one of the most hideous cases I've ever read about. I remember getting chills when I first heard about it.

Neither the "Devil" nor "Twinkies" are likely to get you off the hook, but being bat-shit crazy will sometimes work. Clearly some of the guilt belongs with the idiots who thought their religious "treatment" was going to help him. You don't blame the lion when the lion tamer gets eaten.

Okay, you do actually execute the lion, but you know what I mean.
