Intellectual Disability and the Criminal Justice System: Solutions through Collaboration

#ad
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform #ad - Building on years of firsthand experience, the author provides a useful guide for others working in the field, using many case illustrations, and specific steps to help communities develop a jail diversion program that is right for them. Their better judgment is overshadowed by their need to be accepted as normal and achieve a sense of belonging.

These defendants are lost in a system they don’t understand and one that certainly does not understand them, which partially explains the high conviction rate and frequent travesties of justice. They appear no different than anyone else but they are much different – more prone to being exploited and frequently manipulated to engage in uncharacteristic, illicit acts without fully understanding the implications.

This book discusses the plight of individuals with low or marginal intelligence who become involved in the criminal justice system. The criminal justice system has been ill-prepared to handle the sudden inundation of challenging cases. These individuals are usually the first to be stopped and questioned by police and they are often arrested simply for being in the wrong place or with the wrong people at the wrong time.

Intellectual Disability and the Criminal Justice System: Solutions through Collaboration #ad - And they do this without truly understanding their legal rights. They often self-incriminate when being interrogated, or worse, confess to a crime they haven’t even committed. The book discusses these problems but more importantly, diversion strategies that can be enacted at every point of encounter, it provides readers alternative solutions, preventing entry or further penetration into the “system”.

What the group has accomplished and will hopefully continue to illuminate is the understanding that people with DD/MR are entitled to a whole life experience, including discovering and enjoying their sexuality.
