CO - Diabetic Will Argue 'Involuntary Intoxication' at New Trial
A diabetic man convicted of trying to kill his wife won a chance for a new trial Monday when the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that low blood sugar can cause involuntary intoxication and leave someone incapable of following the law.
The ruling said that under certain conditions, low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, can meet the legal definition of involuntary intoxication as a defense against any crime. It was the first time the court had been presented with that question.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
