Dear editor,

I would like to see a law that allows a “Guilty but insane” verdict. The problem is having to declare someone innocent when as the case recently in the news, the person is indisputably guilty. 

When the person is clearly guilty and clearly insane, call it that and sentence accordingly. 

It is difficult to meet the criteria for a “not guilty by reason of insanity” because it is rarely the case.

Betty Hawley,

Savongburg, Kan.
