Measure Title: RELATING TO CRIMINAL DEFENSE.
Report Title: Murder; Manslaughter; Affirmative Defense; Extreme Mental or Emotional Disturbance; Gender; Sexual Orientation; Gay Panic Defense; Prohibition
Description: Prohibits defendants from claiming that discovery, knowledge, or disclosure of a victim's gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation resulted in extreme mental or emotional disturbance sufficient to reduce a charge of murder to a charge of manslaughter unless the other circumstances of a defendant's explanation are already sufficient to reasonably find extreme mental or emotional disturbance. Requires the court to instruct the jury to disregard bias and prejudice regarding gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation when a defendant's explanation of extreme mental or emotional disturbance includes discovery, knowledge, or disclosure of a victim's gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation.
