Regional Summit on Forensic Science
in the Courts & the PCAST Report

September 22
530 W. New York Street
Indianapolis

The Office of the Indiana Attorney General and Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law will sponsor this discussion of the practicalities and legalities associated with the September 2016 Report to the President "Forensic Science in Criminal Courts: Ensuring Scientific Validity of Feature-Comparison Methods" (commonly referred to as the PCAST Report). The PCAST Report presents a flawed perspective of the validity of scientific disciplines in the courts but is being used by defense attorneys in an effort to exclude or undermine the testimony of crime lab personnel. This FREE one-day seminar is open to prosecutors and crime lab personnel and will provide an introduction to the report, discuss ways of addressing challenges to admissibility based on PCAST and include a panel discussion on laying adequate foundations to overcome later appellate challenges.

Prosecuting Sexual Assault

August 14-18
Long Beach, CA

Sexual assault cases are some of the most difficult cases prosecutors, law enforcement, victim witness NDAA logoprofessionals, and members of the prosecution team will handle. They raise countless emotions from a multitude of individuals. The press is inundated with stories of social media and its impact on these cases; witness intimidation/ recantation; safety issues on college campuses; sex trade trafficking; as well as backlash against the victims. With the complexities of victim dynamics, the absence of eyewitness corroboration, lack of scientific evidence, delayed reporting, the misuse of technology by defendants for spying and stalking vi ctims, as well as the myriad of artful defense claims, these cases challenge traditional prosecution strategies and also test law enforcement protocols and policy. Swift evidence identification and collection is crucial for prosecution and law enforcement.
