No. 96-2267.

140 F.3d 649 (1998)

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Jerry Eugene GONYEA, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit.

Decided April 2, 1998.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Kenneth R. Chadwell (argued and briefed), Office of the U.S. Attorney, Detroit, MI, for Plaintiff-Appellee.

Thomas V. Wilhelm (argued and briefed), Bloomfield Hills, MI, for Defendant-Appellant.

Before WELLFORD, NORRIS, and SILER, Circuit Judges.


ALAN E. NORRIS, Circuit Judge.

Defendant Jerry Gonyea appeals his convictions for bank robbery. Before trial, the district court ruled that he could not assert the defense of diminished capacity. Because we conclude that he was charged under a general intent criminal statute, and diminished capacity is not a defense to general intent crimes, we agree with the district court and affirm defendant's convictions.
