Read my other comment under the one you asked about treatment or jail. You will have to go to court. The judge will decide if you go to treatment, get probation, or go to jail. If you go to jail and have proof of mental illness you will still get medical treatment. The jails and prisons are full of people with mental illness. It is not a defense.
