Sentencing Principles and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a condition caused by prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). It has been estimated that people diagnosed with FASD are 19 times more likely to be incarcerated at some stage in their life.
There is increasing concern within Australia about the forensic implications of FASD, given the neuropsychological impact can potentially affect all aspects of the court process, such as capacity to stand trial or fitness to plead.
