New ABA publication on "Mental Health and Criminal Justice System"
I just received in my in-box this announcement: "The ABA Section of Criminal Justice is pleased to announce the online availability of the Fall 2007 Special Issue of Criminal Justice Magazine, 'The Criminally Mentally Ill', at this link." The issues looks like a great read from start to finish, and here are some of the feature articles that should be of special interest to sentencing fans:
Mental Health and Criminal Justice: An Overview by Andrew E. Taslitz
The Supreme Court’s Recent Criminal Mental Health Cases Rulings of Questionable Competence by Christopher Slobogin
Executing the Mentally Ill: When Is Someone Sane Enough to Die? by Michael Mello

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference New ABA publication on "Mental Health and Criminal Justice System":
The reason I'm not a member of the ABA is because of stuff like this. I have no problem with death penalty opponents stating their claims as Prof. Mello does in this publication -- but where's the other side? And if mental health courts are so good, why do we still have lots of purportedly mentally ill folks in the CJ system?
