FASD & the Justice System

R. v. Sewap, 2008 SKPC 171 (Henning J.): 

Unfit finding for accused with FASD functioning at level of 4-6 year old and having an attention span lasting a matter of minutes – limitations go beyond the ability to communicate with counsel and affect understanding of nature/object of proceedings – no real ability to discuss details of case with counsel – no feasible way to accommodate.
