Subject:high ACES score and mitigation in criminal sentencing

Dear Colleagues, Are any of you familiar with legal cases in which a high ACES score has been used to argue for a more lenient sentence for someone who has committed a serious crime? I would be interested in anything and everything related to this topic. Feel free to write me privately at: LFontes@rcn.com Many thanks, Lisa Aronson Fontes, Ph.D. Senior Lecturer II University of Massachusetts Amherst
