This book offers enlightening insights into the evolution of criminal justice laws concerning persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities, commencing with the M’Naghten rules, and examines their impact in the criminal justice system. The authors scrutinise the mechanisms established in the criminal law policy and legal frameworks that relate to mental health rights, as well as the practices, policies, and laws governing the treatment of persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities in the criminal justice system from their arrest to sentencing. Further, the book critically analyses emerging jurisprudence by the Kenyan courts and conducts an African comparative jurisprudence from select countries.
