Sažetak
The aim of this study was to examine the differences among the not-accountable perpetrators of criminal acts who had occasionally abused alcohol and those who had not abused alcohol during their forensic-psychiatric treatment, considering the following variables: marital status, education, diagnostic category, type of criminal act and alcohol intoxication and age tempore criminis. We have applied the comparative design of investigation, in which the data considering the alcohol abuse among the not-accountable perpetrators of criminal acts treated at Dr. Ivan Barbot Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Popovača, in the period from 2000-2004, had been gathered by means of patients follow-up and questionnaire. The sample consisted of 142 forensic patients who had occasionally abused alcohol and 188 forensic patients who had not abused alcohol during their treatment. The groups have been matched according to sex (male), age at the time of investigation and the duration of treatment. The groups did not differ significantly neither according to the type of criminal act nor according to the level of education. The results of our study have shown that the groups differed significantly according to the diagnostic categories (p<0.01). The persons diagnosed with schizophrenia had abused alcohol less frequently during their forensic-psychiatric treatment, compared to the persons diagnosed with personality disorders and alcoholism. The persons who had abused alcohol during their treatment had done their crime at older age (p<0.027). The groups had also significantly differed according to alcohol intoxication tempore criminis (p<0.01) and according to their marital status (p<0.025). More not-accountable subjects who had abused alcohol during their treatment had been under the influence of alcohol tempore criminis. There were also more divorced persons in that group.
