Prosecuting Elder Abuse Cases September 10-13, 2013
AQUITAS—The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women is hosting a three and a half day training, Prosecuting Elder Abuse Cases, that is designed to provide prosecutors with the substantive knowledge and practical skills to prosecute cases of elder abuse. The seminar will be held on September 10-13, 2013 at the Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel in Arlington, VA. The seminar is designed to allow participants to handle elder abuse cases from beginning to end—from the moment a report makes it to the prosecutor’s desk to sentencing. It encourages collaboration and employing a multi-disciplinary approach to elder abuse cases.
Topics include an overview of elder abuse including the dynamics in these cases, interviewing older witnesses and victims, competence and capacity, typical defense justifications, ethics and professionalism, Crawford and its progeny, and sentencing. Participants are also provided with extensive resource materials to assist them in their future work on elder abuse cases.
