how does one in jail refuse to come to court?
I was wondering the same thing. Is he going to try for diminished responsibility defense?
But this may apply:http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/what-happens-defendant-refuses-enter-plea.html"But defendants who face charges have to plead at least once, in the early stages. (Most cases involve at least two pleas: the initial not-guilty plea, then a plea of guilty or no contest pursuant to a plea deal.)"
