Beyond Guilt or Innocence by Dennis Debbaudt, Investigator and Journalist.

Dennis Debbaudt is a freelance reporter with experience writing for the Detroit News. After his son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, he became interested in the problems faced by people on the spectrum in the legal system (especially because of perceptual problems), and on improving the awareness among law enforcement officers of the issues that arise. He has written several books on this topic, and in conjunction with police departments has developed teaching curriculums.
