Content: The St. Clair County State's Attorney’s Office will join NCADV to break down the process of how cases are presented to a prosecutor for charging through final disposition in an effort to create a working understanding of how prosecutors manage these important cases. The webinar will then pivot to a discussion of specific examples of how advocates can build productive relationships and work with prosecutors, law enforcement, and other advocacy agencies at various stages in the criminal justice system beginning with the investigation by law enforcement through the monitoring of probationers after final disposition of cases.

Date and Time: Friday, August 3, 2018 / 3:00 am – 4:00 am ChST

Alcohol’s unique toxicological effects, widespread use, and ease of access render it the ideal substance to facilitate sexual assault. The same factors that make alcohol such a perfect weapon also present unique challenges for investigators, prosecutors, and other allied professionals in alcohol-facilitated sexual assault (AFSA) cases. An understanding of basic toxicology principles is critical for investigators and prosecutors handling these challenging cases from investigation through sentencing to be able to hold offenders accountable for their criminal behavior.  

This presentation will explain the toxicology of alcohol, as well as drugs, in lay terms that will help participants understand how they affect the body. Topics will include alcohol metabolism, the disproportionate effect of alcohol on women and men, the mechanism of intoxication, an explanation of blackouts vs. pass outs, and other common toxicological issues. It will also explore common issues and challenges related to the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases where alcohol is present. Click here to register.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), invites proposals from communities to participate in the Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Firearms Technical Assistance Project (FTAP). The overall objective of the FTAP is to help communities identify challenges limiting a more robust implementation of domestic violence firearms laws in their jurisdictions and assist them in establishing a localized response that is best suited to their communities’ unique needs and characteristics. NCJFCJ seeks proposals from communities reflective of the geographic diversity across the country, including rural, urban, suburban, and tribal settings, as well as sites with differing governing laws.Click here for additional information.
