. . . And Justice For All?
For the past few weeks I’ve been going through legal documents and paperwork. It has become apparent that Drew’s case is starting to attract national attention and I need to be well organized.
My primary objective for writing this blog is to hopefully help my son receive a new, fair trial or a pardon. Very close beside that goal is to bring awareness to the injustice that far too many people on the autism spectrum face.
If you’re new to my blog, then welcome. I hope you will read every post. I’ve provided transcript excerpts that point to the absurdity of this conviction, sentencing, and the judge’s insistence upon Drew serving active prison time.
Below is a link to an article written last August by Frank Green with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The article introduces the reasonable doubt, while bringing awareness to how easy it is for the behaviors of someone on the autism spectrum to be misunderstood as criminal.
As a part of the autism community our combined voices and votes are strong in numbers. We must protect our developmentally disabled children (and adult children) from a criminal justice system with a one-size-fits-all approach. It isn’t working.
