Prison Adjustment of Youthful Inmates with Mental Retardation.
Smith, Craig; And Others
Mental Retardation, v28 n3 p177-81 Jun 1990
Youthful prison inmates (N=170) with mental retardation were studied to evaluate adjustment to incarceration, based on the frequency of five disciplinary infractions: hygiene violations, noncompliance with authority, assault on an inmate, assault on a correctional officer, and attempted escape. Results showed that subjects demonstrated poor overall adjustment in prison. (Author/JDD)
