Unequal Justice

What can happen when people with retardation or other developmental disabilities encounter the criminal justice system

by Bob Perske

ISBN 0-687-42983-8

$25.00


A man with retardation sat on the witness stand.
"Jerome, did you assassinate President Lincoln?"
"Yes," Jerome said.
"Did you assassinate President Kennedy?"
"Yes," Jerome said.

Incidents like this demonstrate how people with retardation and similar disabilities - whether they are guilty or innocent of - can often be shockingly defenseless when questioned under pressure in America's criminal justice system.

Presenting actual crime issues and cases, Perske casts fresh light on all the ways these persons can be misunderstood by criminal justice officials. This book is a must read for these who work with or care about persons with disabilities.

122 pages, softbound from Abingdon Press.
