People with Intellectual Disability and the Criminal Justice System

Written Material

"A young woman with an intellectual disability was sexually assaulted by a bus driver. She was able to give police a detailed and credible account of what took place yet she, and her parents, were told to 'go home and forget about it'. They didn't. And this is an account of how, with perseverance and some good fortune, the criminal justice system can be made to work for people with disability." Keyword: Legal
