criminal responsibility (insanity) evaluations
An evaluation of criminal responsibility (insanity) involves an assessment of whether a psychological disorder impacted a defendant’s judgment or perception at the time of an offense. An assessment of the defendant’s mental state at the time of the offense can provide the legal decision-maker with pertinent information regarding criminal responsibility. Criteria for criminal responsibility evaluations, mental state at the time of the offense, and diminished capacity vary by state and jurisdiction. In Georgia, Dr. Shah and Dr. Hill offer criminal responsibility evaluations that closely examines whether a defendant had the mental capacity to distinguish between right and wrong or was suffering from a delusional compulsion that overmastered his or her will. Our forensic psychologists thoroughly examine a defendant’s mental status at the time of the offense by carefully seeking and examining multiple sources of information.
