Indeed, YB expressed surprise that his victim had called the police because he thought he had apologised to her and even bought her a packet of lollies, suggesting that he believed justice had been restored. The legal discussions in the courtroom centred on whether YB appreciated the wrongfulness of his behaviour in relation to the criteria for AS and ASD. The defence argued that the disorder contributed to YB’s actions. YB always struggled with developing and maintaining friendships, gravitating towards younger peers who were closer to his developmental level.
Although these rates are clearly in excess of the prevalence of ASD, a key confounding factor is again a referral bias. In Sweden, forensic assessment referral was determined by the courts on the basis of the unusual behaviour or apparent mental state of the offender; some of the behavioural characteristics of offenders with ASD likely increased the chances of such referral. Studies such as these seem to suggest that individuals with ASD are likely to be over-represented in young offender populations.
Perhaps the most persuasive evidence comes from Enayati et al. (2008), who contrasted diagnostic information on 214 arsonists who had received forensic psychiatric assessments in Sweden with that for over 2000 violent offenders assessed in the same way. These assessments were conducted based on the suspicion that the offender had a mental disorder. 5%). While this difference looks telling, it is impossible to determine if there may have been referral biases operating. For example, a stereotype amongst referrers that AS is likely to be associated with arson, coupled with an offender presenting with AS-type behaviours, may have biased the referrer towards requesting an assessment.
