One of the more bizarre defenses in the history of the American legal system. First up, the so called “Twinkie Defense”. On Nov. 27, 1978, San Francisco City Supervisor Dan White shot and killed Mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk who was another supervisor. White claimed he committed the crimes after binging on junk food. Next, “The Sleepwalking Defense” where Scott Falater stabbed his wife 44 times, but claimed he was sleepwalking while he did it. Then, “The Nymphomaniac Defense” where a woman claimed she was engaged in sexual surrogate therapy rather than prostitution.
