White’s defense was that he suffered diminished cpacity as a result of his depression. His change in diet from healthy food to Twinkies other sugary food was said to be a symptom of depression. Contrary to common belief, White’s attorneys did not argue that the Twinkies were the cause of White’s actions, but that their consumption was symptomatic of his underlying depression. White was convicted of voluntary manslaughter.
