The term 'reason', as used in this phrase, does not refer to the ability to reason of either the lawyer or the defendant, but the cause for the defendant of not being guilty (because of not being able to intend to perform a crime due to insanity).

Having said that, it would have been clearer to just say 'because' rather than 'by reason of'. D'Oh! | :doh: The hilarity simply emerges from the convoluted ways of expressing stuff in legalese.Unsure | :~
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
