United States v. McQuade
403 F.3d 717 (10th Cir. 2005
A juvenile defendant was charged with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse and was tried as an adult. The court found that the juvenile’s diagnosis of FAS made him less amenable to treatment especially in juvenile treatment facilities. Court found that juvenile facilities would not be equipped to provide him with the necessary psychological treatment for his anti-social personality disorder, his inability to appreciate the wrongfulness and harmfulness of his actions, the loss of control of his sexual and aggressive impulses and his narcissistic tendencies.
