Niagara Falls NY Autism Criminal Defense

Niagara Falls NY Autism Criminal DefensePeople on the autism spectrum perceive the world differently than others. Sometimes, this can negatively impact their social interactions. Because many with autism struggle with reading body language and recognizing other subtle emotional cues, their behavior can often seem inappropriate to others, even if the intentions were entirely benign. Autistic individuals have a higher risk of being charged with crimes involving inappropriate sexual behavior, either in person or online.

In a criminal court, there are those who don't acknowledge autism as a mitigating factor in sexual harassment and similar cases. However, this is a line of thinking that has changed, allowing for effective legal defenses to emerge. However, it is entirely possible for an autistic person to knowingly commit a crime, this defense focuses on the possibility of them committing activity without understanding inappropriate behavior.
