Normal is Normal: Effective Use of Medical Evidence in the Prosecution of Child Sexual Abuse Cases

Event Dates
Eastern
Location
Online

This webinar will discuss the importance of pediatric sexual assault exams in cases of child sexual abuse and how to present the findings of that exam to a jury. A majority of the exams will be "normal" and that evidence can be used to corroborate a child's statement using expert medical testimony. The testimony of the expert can also be used to explain anatomy which gives prosecutors medical evidence to argue issues of penetration.
