FASD & the Justice System

R. v. CH (2011), 316 Nfld & PEIR 65, 2011 CanLII 67656 (PC) (Gorman J.): 

Young person charged with B&E and breach of probation – FASD and extensive record – most stable and responsive when in custody, also could receive treatment and supports for FASD – 90 days custodial sentence (60 closed, 30 open) – long term protection of public requires some custody because this is the only way in which it was possible to address offender’s long term needs.
