Individuals with Mental Retardation and the Criminal Justice System: The View from States' Attorneys General.
McAfee, James K.; Gural, Michele
Mental Retardation, v26 n1 p5-12 Feb 1988
Results of a survey of state attorneys general (N=46) found that, with few exceptions, identification of persons with mental retardation in criminal justice is neither systematic nor probable. Protections lie in statutes pertaining to mental illness rather than to mental retardation. (Author/DB)
