NATIONAL CENTER FOR PROSECUTION OF CHILD ABUSE
This 5-day trial advocacy course focuses on the prosecution of technology-facilitated crimes against children. Unsafe Havens II will address opening statements through sentencing and the unique issues facing the prosecution of these complex cases. Training components include:
- Evidentiary issues
- Presenting expert testimony
- Strategies for combating both technological and factual defenses
- Working with compliant and adolescent victims and protecting their rights
- Presentation of technological and graphic evidence
- Appellate record consideration
- Sentencing issues
Modeled after ChildProof, this intense training will incorporate lectures, case studies, trial advocacy exercises, and workshops. This course will emphasize the use of multidisciplinary teams in the prosecution of these cases. Moreover, it will teach the prosecutor how to prepare and present evidence in the most effective method possible for a skeptical jury pool.
Who Should Apply
State, local, federal and military Prosecutors handling technology-facilitated crimes against children. There is no requirement on years of experience as a child abuse prosecutor.
The course is limited to 30 prosecutors. The first 30 registrants will be accepted to attend. However, we will accept additional applications thereafter and if there is a cancellation we will advise in the order that the applications were received.
Registration fee and cost
