FASD & the Justice System

R. V. ML, [2000] SJ NO. 17 (Turpel-Lafond J.):  

Sentencing of Aboriginal offender with FAS for arson – specific deterrence ineffective – while separation is a relevant consideration, there is a lack of programming for people with FASD in custodial facilities – community sentence with lengthy release plan – need for structured release plan and crafted programming.
