Brooks, Thom (2015) 'Involuntary intoxication : a new six-step procedure.', Journal of criminal law., 79 (2). pp. 138-146.
Involuntary intoxication is often misunderstood. The predominant ‘orthodox’ view is that involuntary intoxication should lead to acquittal for offences requiring proof of fault. Strict liability offences are therefore unaffected. This article argues that the law is more complex, requiring a more careful approach. The article provides a new six-step procedure to determine whether involuntary intoxication is applicable and should lead to acquittal.
