And the answer is...155!! Isn't that shocking?? And of those, 41 won. Thanks for playing!!
Between 1988 and 1997 there were roughly 96,000 felony indictments in New York so on average, just under 10,000 per year during this 10 year span. Of the 96,000 cases, how many defendants entered a not guilty plea by reason of insanity or diminished capacity? They don't need to have won the case. Simply, of the 96,000 homicide cases tried in New York, how many of these pleas were entered during this time?
Let me know what you think and I'll post the answer. Then, I'll tell you of those cases, how many won!
