FASD & the Justice System

R. v. Smith, 2009 ABCA 42:  

Appeal of sentence for kidnapping a child, assault with a weapon, possession of stolen property – FASD evaluation not encouraging as indicates significant risk of reoffending and need for close supervision – offender 19 with mental capacity of 10-12 year old – lengthy probation necessary not as rehabilitation measure but as best means to protect the public.
