When a person with developmental disabilities becomes involved with the criminal justice system it is usually because they witness a crime, are a victim of a crime, or are accused of a crime. This curriculum makes participants aware of what is considered “criminal activity” and their rights if they should become involved with the police, jails, lawyers, or courts. This workshop teaches the terms/ vocabulary used in the criminal justice system. It also gives tips about your personal rights and facts like you should never, ever give files or paperwork to anyone. Only answer questions about the facts on your ID card.
