Elder Abuse: Financial Exploitation, Physical and Sexual Assualts and Homicide
December 7, 2020
11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET
Presented by the National District Attorneys Association
The faculty member will explore the unique aspects of investigating and prosecuting cases that involve physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation or homicide where the victim is an elder individual. He will overview the dynamics regarding these special victims, including stereotypes, i.e. invalid preconceived notions of memory loss, dementia, etc. He will discuss the true value and credibility of these witnesses. Some additional issues discussed include: conquering juror bias with elders as witnesses; charging concerns; challenges when abuse occurs in institutional settings; preparing the witness for pretrial hearings and trial; anticipating and overcoming typical defenses in these cases; methods of corroborating the victim’s account of the assault; researching the areas where your victim is most vulnerable and tackling these and other weaknesses in your case during direct examination; preparing the victim for cross-examination; any unique pretrial motions; use of expert witnesses both to establish medical documentation as well as mental/demeanor evidence; overcoming defense claims in homicide cases and other crimes to watch for in the investigatory stage.
