Intoxication and criminal responsibility

29 Aug 2006
Description

This report addresses the questions of when, and in what ways, an accused’s state of intoxication (whether by alcohol or drugs) is relevant to their trial for a criminal offence. Kate Warner makes 13 recommendations for reform including the key recommendation that evidence of intoxication should be relevant to any mental element, including intention, knowledge, foresight of consequences and whether the act was voluntary or intentional.
