I am totally prepared to start a campaign if there is not one to support ASD Adults going to court on criminal convictions. There are NO specialist solicitors. The Police are dreadful not trained completely for ASD. The courts need to improve advocate support inside then just a solicitor alone then generally get guilty pleas instead of looking at the whole. ASD sadly do not always have a voice and always go along with solicitors bad advice. I would like to see solicitors and courts support cases where ASD and social isolation to be taken seriously in any charges and always seek reports as protocol when is known ASD person is before the courts. Can anyone help me know how to improve the system where guilty pleas are forced then the truth and innocence is lost due to ASD going along with early guilty pleas when innocent to criminal convictions then the entire?
Well. I have am Dyslexic and recently referred for ASD diagnosis. But I also studied Law and did the Academic training to be Barrister. I was even Called to the Bar.
After 10 years though I still haven’t got the apprenticeship to finish off the training. I am still stacking shelves.
There are many things that need changing about the system.
