Additional Event Information

We have received a few requests to cover more topics related to Domestic Violence. In response, Sharla Jackson, Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Resource Prosecutor with PAC, has agreed to speak on Hearsay Exceptions in Domestic Violence Cases. A few weeks back Simone Hylton covered techniques to use with recanting victims. Sharla's presentation will focus more on the law about hearsay exceptions.  

Here is what to expect from this session:
Hearsay evidence plays an essential role in completing the story of a crime. In domestic violence cases, this evidence is critical for corroborating a victim's account or establishing facts if that victim does not testify. This course will outline the procedures for admitting hearsay evidence under Georgia law using the most recent court decisions.  

This presentation is geared towards Prosecutors, but Law Enforcement could benefit from this as well.

We are working to schedule more Domestic Violence related topics and hope to have a few more scheduled this year. Stay tuned!
