Abused Or Neglected? ACEs Could Be Used In Your Defense
If you were abused or neglected as a child, your Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) could be a strategic component for your defense. ACEs are stressful, traumatic childhood events that include physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
These events can disrupt neurodevelopment causing impaired cognitive functioning and coping skills. Research has found that ACEs are directly related to a higher risk of social problems, substance abuse disorders and behavioral issues in adulthood.
At Tallahassee’s Norris Law, we are cognizant of considering a plaintiff’s ACE score and will work to use this fact in our defense argument.
