Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital
Patient: Andrew Wilson
Douglas Banks, PhD
A.W. was brought to the hospital after a jury found that A.W. was not capable of understanding the charges against him, nor could he manifest appropriate behavior in the courtroom.
The aforementioned charges resulted from an incident in which A.W. bludgeoned two people to death in a sex club.
A.W.’s defense successfully argued that A.W.’s voluntarily bondage (which he entered into for his sexual gratification) triggered an episode in which he was unable to control or understand the consequences of his actions.
It is the clinician’s belief that A.W.’s family used its considerable fortune and influence to acquire experts to present biased opinions to the jury.
During his intake interview, A.W. was smug, and even confrontational, insinuating that the clinician was a homosexual, and that the clinician asked questions solely to inspire personal homosexual reverie.
A course of treatment cannot be recommended, as it is the clinician’s belief that A.W.’s maladaptive disposition is characterological in nature, and that therapy and medication may only dampen, but not alter, underlying pathology.
