Abstract

This text, Caught in the Web of the Criminal Justice System, represents a crucial exploration into the subject of working with offenders convicted of child pornography or sexual abuse charges. It differentiates itself by considering the perspectives of sexual offenders with a diagnosis of autism and other developmental disabilities and offers a fresh perspective upon current sex offending legislation in the USA by offering chapters written from the perspectives of individuals charged with a sexual offence and an accompanying diagnosis of autism, as well as a consideration of the personal and economic impact this type of conviction can have on family members.
