How can drug addiction be innocent? A drug addict in Taiwan killed his mother dozens of times in October 2018. After committing the crime, he cut off his mother's head and threw the head downstairs from a high-rise building. The first-instance judge sentenced the judge to life imprisonment. Recently, in the second instance of the High Court, the judge unexpectedly acquitted the judge, which not only caused social uproar, but also made the Minister of Justice speak harshly, pointing out that the judge quoted the law incorrectly, which might make.
the whole people think that as long as The telemarketing list misconception that criminals are exempt from severe punishment by drug or alcohol abuse. The judge of the second instance in this case believed that the perpetrator was currently taking drugs, did not know what he did after taking drugs, could not identify his own behavior, and did not subjectively understand that drug use would cause any harm, so he sentenced the perpetrator not guilty.
To this end, I checked the German regulations and got a comparison of the general rules. German law: Subjective claims of crime are not taken into account for drug or alcohol abusers. They cannot be held accountable for crimes committed after insanity, but they are legally responsible for taking drugs or alcohol while insane. In Taiwan, the second-instance judge believed that the perpetrator could not identify his own behavioral capacity, so after the first-instance life imprisonment, the second-instance commuted the acquittal, without considering that his drug-taking behavior itself should have legal culpability.
