Presenting a webinar session on Criminal Jurisdiction In Indian Country, with Dorma Sahneyah, JD, NIWRC Program Specialist, and Leslie Hagen, National Indian Country Training Coordinator, Department Of Justice, EOUSA/OLE.In everyday life, a women’s safety depends largely on the local government’s authority to establish strong laws criminalizing violence against women and to effectively police, prosecute, and punish offenders convicted under these laws. In Indian country, federal legislation and case law have left tribal governments with far less legal authority to protect their citizens/women than any other local government. Join us to walk through the maze of criminal jurisdiction existing today in Indian Country.
