Hi there - I am a felony DPA in Yakima County Washignton, and I am scheduled to start a felony murder case a week from tomorrow. The defendant was eluding the police when he ran a red light and hit another vehicle killing two young men and injuring another. He was high on meth at the time and was driving a stolen vehicle. The defense has indicated that they intend to assert a diminished capacity/voluntary intoxication defense --- the underlying �mental disorder� being Poly-Substance Intoxication/Dependence and Dysthymic Disorder (chronically depressed mood). Unlike other parts of the country, Washington does allow for a voluntary intoxication instruction where the mental state is recklessness.
They have indicated that the will be calling Mark D. Cunningham a psychologist from Lewisville Texas. I have read a few threads and I see that this guy is not well thought of. I need any information, transcripts etc that might help me in dealing with this "expert."
Thanks so much. Therese Murphy
I have quite a bit of material on Dr. Cunningham. If you send me your address, I'll be happy to send it to you.
