This webinar will address the unique dynamics present in child abuse cases and suggest ways to effectively present them to a jury. The webinar will teach participants how to incorporate problematic facts into their theory of the case.
Please join us on February 24, 2017 at 3 PM EST for a presentation on the crime known as Animal Crush. Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of Texas, Sherri Zack, will familiarize you with the federal statute and its penalties, provide a case study that encompasses the history of the statute and its amendment, as well as demonstrate the value of the state/federal partnership in successfully obtaining convictions under both state and federal laws. In the process we will explore the investigation, evidentiary issues, policy issues and trial challenges. While this is a very disturbing topic it is worthy of your attention as prosecutors and law enforcement officers as these victims cannot speak for themselves.
