I was convicted of negligent child abuse because I have high functioning autism and I didnt have a clue until I was 28 years old. The US and the world need to be more aware of this issue. My wife starved our six week old daughter to death and I never knew she was doing it. I couldnt recognize the signs because of the autism and I finally had it explained to me . The courts wouldnt recongize it or let it in but I finally know why I am like I am. Adjusting to life after prison is very difficult too even witha family that loves me. Please do more to advocate all testing to get the message out. My situation could have been prevented if I had known the facts or my parents had. Thank you
