Collaborating to Advance Survivor Voices and Rights in Criminal Justice

Topic: Collaborating to Advance Survivor Voices and Rights in Criminal Justice

Hosted By: National Crime Victim Law Institue

Date/Time: September 20, 23, 27 and 30 4:00 AM - 6:00 AM ChST

Description: Crime victims who interact with criminal justice may find the experience empowering and an aid in their healing journey, or they may experience re- victimization and new traumas from the interaction. What explains the difference in outcome? Survivor empowerment. When survivors are empowered with knowledge of their rights and have the ability to activate them they will have better personal outcomes. Integral to empowering survivors are front-line advocates – system-based and community-based – working together to support victims. This two-week, 10 hour course will teach the fundamentals of advocate collaboration necessary to meaningfully protect survivors’ rights and enhance survivor agency. The course is designed for community- and system-based advocates who serve survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking and dating violence as they interact with criminal justice. The training includes synchronous and asynchronous elements that will teach substantive content and allow time to practice the skills necessary to put knowledge into action. Join this cohort and become a part of the solution!

Not Just a Credibility Contest: Sexual Violence Prosections That Go Beyond "Offender Said, Victim Said"

Topic: Not Just a Credibility Contest: Sexual Violence Prosections That Go Beyond "Offender Said, Victim Said"

Hosted By: AEquitas

Date/Time: Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at 4:00am ChST

Description: Sexual violence cases are often mistakenly reduced to a contest of credibility between the victim’s disclosure and the offender’s denial. Even though jurisdictions do not require corroboration of the victim's testimony at trial, jurors may find it difficult to convict a defendant absent additional evidence. While crimes of sexual violence typically do not occur in front of other individuals, there are always witnesses and evidence to corroborate what happened before, during, and after the assault. By presenting the full scope of admissible evidence, prosecutors will increase the likelihood of success at trial while reducing the burden on victims.
This presentation will address strategies and tactics to understand and explain victim disclosures through a trauma-informed lens; utilize victim behavior experts to educate fact-finders about the range of victim responses to sexual violence; and examine offender characteristics, motivations, and behaviors, as well as the impact of the offender’s actions on the victim. The presenter will suggest strategies for overcoming common misconceptions at trial, including establishing a compelling trial theme, introducing evidence of the defendant’s predatory behavior, presenting corroborating evidence to support witness credibility, and recreating the reality of the crime for the jury.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be better able to:
• Maintain focus on the offender
• Support victim and witness credibility with corroborating evidence.
• Develop and present expert testimony to explain victim behavior.
• Recreate the reality of the crime at trial.
