Excuse

Excuses (as a term of jurisprudence) are a form of defense; in which a defendant argues that, at the time a law was broken, they were not liable for their actions; and thus, should not be held liable for a crime. Excuses include: diminished responsibility, duress, infancy, insanity, involuntary intoxication, mistake, provocation, and unconsciousness.
