Recently several cases have relied on the defense of automatism or sleepwalking. One man drove 14 miles to his mother-in-law’s house and stabbed her five times, allegedly in his sleep! Christopher Pittman killed his grandparents and claimed he did it because of the use of the antidepressant Zoloft. “
