Unfit to Stand Trial

A person is declared Unfit to Stand Trial (Unfit) if a mental illness prohibits that person from understanding the nature, object or consequences of the events that occur in court, or if that illness prevents the person from being able to communicate with and instruct his or her lawyer. Simply being diagnosed with a mental illness does not make a person Unfit.
