    There is a huge amount of research and anecdotal evidence that people with disabilities- particularly those with cognitive and sensory disabilities- struggle to get justice as victims of crime, particularly in facing court proceedings. Furthermore, there is significant evidence that people with cognitive disabilities (including autism) are over-represented within the criminal justice system as both victims and perpetrators, however there is little support for these individuals throughout criminal proceedings and/or rehabilitation in the prison population.
