Canada’s Supreme Court rules voluntary extreme intoxication is a defence

The Supreme Court of Canada has delivered what could be considered a landmark ruling that would allow those accused of violent crimes, including murder or sexual assault, to use a defence known as self-induced extreme intoxication.

The court ruling says there are some instances when an accused person on drugs commits conduct that can be involuntary and cannot be held guilty for his actions.

David Akin breaks down the ruling, the two cases involved and what it could mean going forward.
