From what I have gathered and can figure out about it.. that criminal capacity impacts the defense process because if the person is under the criminal culpability age or the person is found to have any type of mental disorder the actor may not able to comprehend criminal responsibility.
Do you have anymore information on this or am I right about my thinkings?
What is the connection between criminal convictions and criminal capacity. How would data support the connection?
I had another person try to explain to me that the connection between the two is that the data must show intent. the intent must be proven showing that the defendant was fully aware of their action while the crime was committed. Is this true as well for this question?
