Chapter 3 reviews the vulnerabilities of people with intellectual disabilities, and focuses on the criminal justice system, but it should be noted that many of the same issues are relevant to the civil justice system. For clarity, we consider people with intellectual disabilities first as witnesses for the police and in court, and then as suspects/defendants.
