1) In this country, the legal maxim "innocent until proven guilty" exists.

2) In order for someone to be convicted of a criminal offense, there must exist a guility mind and a guilty act. If the defendant suffers from mental disease or mental defect, it is possible that he may not have known that his actions were a criminal offense.

In theory, if a brain tumor is found on the defendant and that brain tumor is removed rendering the man completely mentally healthy and the brain tumor can be proven to have caused the man to have become mentally ill enough to have not known the gravity of his actions, then the man could possibly "walk".

Speaking of slang words like "walk", rather than wasting your time and energy learning those, why don't you research criminal court process and learn the real words and theory behind the criminal justice system?
