Description: 

The Internet is a haven for sex traffickers to recruit, advertise, and communicate with their victims. Traffickers frequently use mobile phones, online services, and nontraditional banking methods, which all present their own challenges to investigations. At the same time, these activities leave “digital breadcrumbs” to follow during an investigation. Investigators and prosecutors should work together to use the latest available resources to preserve valuable evidence that can be presented to great affect at trial.

This webinar will provide practical information and investigative strategies that will assist in the identification, investigation, and successful prosecution of traffickers. It will address how digital evidence can corroborate victim and witness testimony, support charging decisions, and reinforce evidence-based trial strategies that do not rely entirely upon victim testimony.

Allied justice system professionals including but not limited to law enforcement officers and prosecutors are encouraged to view this recording.

CLE Credits
This webinar recording should qualify prosecutors for one (1) hour of continuing legal education credits. Prosecutors are encouraged to contact their state bar association in reference to application requirements and related fees.

Description: 

Whether it is a single incident or an ongoing pattern of abuse, sexual assault can undermine a victim’s physical and emotional safety—effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security. This 90-minute webinar will address the importance of safety planning for victims of non-intimate partner sexual assault, explore how safety planning for these survivors may be different than safety planning with domestic violence victims, and provide tips for using the VRLC's new, OVW-approved guide to safety planning with adult survivors of non-intimate partner sexual assault. The webinar will include a discussion of strategies for protecting victim privacy, discussing emotional safety, and providing survivor-centered safety planning.

Description: 

Legal advocacy and representation in the civil justice arena is a critical complement to the remedies and rights available to sexual assault victims through the criminal justice process. After completing this webinar, participants will be able to identify some of the unique issues confronted by victims of sexual assault, and better understand what advocates, lawyers, and other responders can do to access civil remedies to promote victim healing and recovery. The webinar will address victims’ rights and remedies related to employment, housing, privacy, education, immigration, safety, and financial stability, providing participants with the opportunity to “issue spot” victim needs and develop strategies to meet them.
