Prosecuting Sex Traffickers: Trial Preparation

Thu, Sep 20, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM EDT

This webinar is designed to assist prosecutors and investigators who are preparing child sex trafficking cases for trial. We will discuss preparing a case for trial, charging decisions, expert witnesses, and defense strategies. Trafficking cases require thorough case preparation of complex evidence. Analyzing potential charges early in the case allows for the collection of evidence and the consideration of what witnesses are required. Expert witnesses are necessary to help the jury understand both pimp subculture and victim issues. Anticipating defense strategies helps prosecutors stay focused on their case to achieve a successful prosecution.
