Binghamton NY Autism Criminal Defense

Autism Criminal Defense in BinghamtonPeople on the autism spectrum perceive interactions differently than others. Though it varies based on the individual, reading body language and understanding emotional cues may be challenging in during social interactions. Unfortunately, this can lead to unwanted and offensive behavior that others feel. However, in the case of autistic individuals, displaying unusual behavior may be unintentional and lack any desire to harm anyone else. One particular area of concern is that autistic individuals face a greater risk of criminal involvement related to sexual behavior. 

While an autistic person can knowingly commit a crime, there is also the possibility of this not being the case. In the past, the criminal justice system did not have many policies acknowledging these kinds of cases, but nowadays, the field has had advancement in this field.
