Does Idaho Have an Insanity Defense?

Idaho does not have an insanity defense. Even though Idaho doe snot have an insanity defense, a defendant is permitted to use evidence of mental illness to undermine the prosecution's proof that he was capable of forming the intent necessary to commit the charged crime. For example, you can not argue that schizophrenia prevented you from understanding that what you did was wrong, but you could seek acquittal on the ground that your schizophrenia prevented you from forming the deliberate intention to kill a person. Idaho Legislature repealed Idaho's insanity defense statute and enacted a law that states that "mental condition shall not be a defense to any charge of criminal conduct," in 1982.
