TRIAL: Rosa Cabral fights back tears at a June criminal court hearing. Her son Reny is charged with attempted murder and domestic abuse, and since Glenn County does not offer special mental health courts, his legal defense options are severely limited. In August he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, a claim that could lead to indefinite incarceration in a state mental hospital. FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this caption incorrectly said that Reny Cabral had pleaded guilty by reason of insanity. He pleaded not guilty.
