Come on, people who are ill get in trouble and it is not their fault most of the time. We must not treat them as criminals and throw them away like they don't matter. A friend who is bipolar and schizophrenic made a pass at a girl, telling her he wants to marry her and hugging her. She was 3 months shy of her 18th birthday but it's not as if my friend had any idea she was a minor, and her father was a cop, so they threw him in jail.  Bail was high so he was stuck there till trial. My friend, in his condition, was so tormented by sitting in a cell he agreed to plead guilty to a child annoyance charge not realizing that comes with a sex offender registration. He now has to live his life as a sex offender. If he went to court he probably would have gotten a lesser charge or have it dropped all together it is so ridiculous.
