Abstract:

This report provides an historical overview of the management and treatment of retarded offenders, definitions of defective delinquency, and survey of the institutionalized retarded offender. The authors surveyed approximately 200,000 inmates of penal institutions in December 1963. It was found that 9.5 percent of the inmates could be classified as mentally retarded. It was found that the most frequent crime committed by the retarded inmate was first-degree murder, accounting for slightly less than 21 percent of all the retardates. Other criminal homicides accounted for 17.6 percent of the sample, and breaking and entering accounted for an equal percentage. Other sections of the document deal with legal considerations affecting the retarded offender, current state planning for retarded offenders, and recommendations for action and research.
