In the movie Side Effects, at the end, Victoria is arrested for Insider Trading and planning the Murder. The murder however is committed by Emily, whose end judgement it so go back to the mental ward. If that is the case Emily is still deemed a nutjob. Agreed that Double Jeopardy prevents her from going to trial one more time so as a hack they put her in the Mental ward.
From Victoria's standpoint, this becomes an advantage because she could always plea that one can never conspire and plan anything with a mentally troubled person. She might lose her license as a practitioner but can't be held prisoner for anything unless Emily is deemed NOT a nut-case.
Am I missing something here? Did I get it wrong?
