Earthly criminality is the domain of the criminal justice system. Many criminals plead insanity, but the legal definition of insanity is very, very narrow.
In most US states, the insanity defense is based on a variation of the M’Naghten Rules of 1843.
In M’Naghten, a defendant must have been so impaired by a mental disease or defect at the time of the act that he or she did not know the nature or quality of the act, or, if the defendant did know the nature or quality of the act, he or she did not know that the act was wrong.
Insanity defenses are rarely successful because the law rarely looks beyond this narrow legal definition of insanity.
However, in light of the above discussion of the types of people that could be susceptible to negative spirit influences, it is easy to see that a substantial number of criminals are likely to be obsessed by low order spirits, and if not insane in the legal sense, they are certainly mentally impaired.
