The Forgotten Victims: Elder Abuse Homicides Part 2, A Prosecutor’s Perspective
On Friday, April 20, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. eastern time, the Elder Justice Initiative presents the webinar “The Forgotten Victims: Elder Homicides Part 2, A Prosecutor’s Perspective.” Please join us as Belle Chen of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office discusses the unique challenges of investigating and prosecuting elder and dependent neglect homicides.
This webinar will highlight some of the challenges and common dynamics in these cases through a comparison of two elder neglect cases that went to trial and were presented to juries. This presentation can aid law enforcement in their investigations of complex elder neglect cases and prosecutors in their review, filing, and litigation in criminal court.
OVC’s Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) provides training to support professional development, enhance services to the community, and expand outreach to underserved victims of crime.
