PLEASE READ BELOW AND SIGN TO AGREE

The identification and assessment for ASD needs to occur as early as possible in the criminal justice process.
Cases involving suspects and defendants with ASD comparing charges, pleas entered, procedural adjustments at court, evidence adduced about the defendant’s condition, directions to juries, judicial remarks on the evidence (e.g. summing up for the jury), verdicts and sentencing .would enable the assessment of the specific offending behaviour and disorder of the defendant and how these may be relevant to determining their mental capacity, culpability and case outcome.
In Prison settings people with an ASD frequently experience it as more traumatic due to the fact that their additional needs go unrecognised and they therefore do not receive the appropriate care that they need. Individuals with ASD are also more vulnerable to bullying and social isolation within prison.
In summary, we implore policy makers to act immediately in order that unnecessary suffering and injustices stop now..
