What to expect from this session: 

One of the most challenging issues in seeking justice for victims and ensuring public safety while prosecuting domestic violence cases is the phenomenon of victim recantation. When a victim recants their statement or is otherwise unavailable for trial, prosecutors are often obligated to dismiss a case. Evidence-Based Prosecution, which includes understanding Domestic Violence Dynamics, using hearsay evidence, and providing victim support, can allow for the effective handling of cases while promoting victim safety and offender accountability.

This course will explore the essential elements of an Evidence-Based Prosecution, including complete investigations, hearsay evidence, and expert witness testimony.
