The position of disabled people within criminal justice frameworks and scholarship isone of ambivalence, which leaves disabled people in the simultaneous and contradictoryposition of centrality and marginality. While disabled people are over-represented withinthe criminal justice system (as offenders, victims, and witnesses), their voices are oftenmarginalized or silenced. So too, while disabled people are over-represented within thecriminal justice system, they remain under-explored in policy, practice, research, andscholarship. Aligning with the shift to queer and queering criminology, in this article wedeploy the lens of ‘crip’ and ‘cripping’ to facilitate a more critical engagement with theconcerns of disabled people, along with the mechanisms by which abledness informscriminal justice encounters.
