(CNN) - Tonight we’re talking to CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin about Jared Lee Loughner.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Loughner was not mentally competent to stand trial, but what exactly does that mean? Jeffrey Toobin wants to make sure we don’t confuse that with the increasingly popular “insanity defense.” The two are often confused and they aren’t linked. Jeffrey will explain in more detail tonight on AC360°.
And what is the threshold for being mentally competent? It seems that it changes from case to case, trial to trial. Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains the process of evaluating a defendant before a trial. This is all news you don’t want to miss tonight on AC360° beginning at 10pm ET.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
