Sexual assault cases are some of the most difficult cases a prosecutor and members of the prosecution team will handle. From the complexities of victim dynamics, to the absence of eyewitness corroboration, to the use of technology by defendants, as well as the myriad of defense claims, these cases challenge traditional prosecution strategies and also test law enforcement protocols and policy. Undetected and undeterred sex offenders pose a real threat to the safety of your community.
It is vital that the victim’s fears, anxiety and safety concerns are given priority beginning at the investigative and charging stages as well as during the pendency of defendant’s sentence. It is equally as important that an accurate evaluation and assessment of needs be made as to ensure provision of essential services.
To assist prosecutors, law enforcement personnel and victim-witness personnel successfully meet these challenges; the National District Attorneys Association presents the Prosecuting Sexual Assaults and Related Crimes course.
The program’s tentative topics include:
- Why Do We Call Them Accusers? Stopping Victim Blaming Behavior
- Manner Of Death: Sexual Assault Homicides
- Pro Active Cross Examination of Defendants and Their Witnesses
- Aggressive Motions Practice
- Overcoming the Consent Defense
- The Impact of Crawford on Sexual Assault trials, including Witness Intimidation Issues
- Victim Privacy Rights
- Investigation and Prosecution of Stalking Cases
- Sexploitation Cases
- The Visual Trial
- Jury Selection Issues
- Intimate Partner Sexual Assault
- Electronic Evidence : Practical Aspects
- Ethics & Professionalism
- Competency and Insanity :Mental Health Challenges
There is also time set aside for attendees to brainstorm current cases on your dockets with seasoned faculty members. We encourage all attendees to bring your cases- notes, exhibits, reports and take advantage of this opportunity to informally meet and network with seasoned faculty members as well as your peers to assist you in better preparation and analysis of your cases.
