Episode Info:

How could Ben Solo be defended if he were prosecuted for the many crimes of Kylo Ren? Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Carol Najera, Sylvia La Rosa, and Joshua Gilliland, explore the issues of whether the Dark Side destroyed Ben Solo’s ability to distinguish between right and wrong or made him act under a delusional compulsion. Would a jury convict Ben Solo for the murder of Lor San Tekka and ordering a war crime on Jakku? What expert testimony would be necessary to show Ben Solo did not understand the wrongfulness of his actions? Tune in to find out from our discussion.
