The Academy is excited to welcome Bryan Barlow, Cordelia Coppleson, and Jaclyn Rodriguez for this very special 90-minute AFN Member's Only Webinar
One peculiar trait of sexual offenders is that their crimes are often serial in nature. Research into serial sexual offenders shows that they will commit almost six acts of sexual assault each. Though these offenders are not often prosecuted as serial offenders due to the underreported nature of sexual offenses, when brought to trial, these cases provide a fascinating story intertwining the work of forensic practitioners, police detectives, and prosecuting attorneys.
Presented by a highly experienced panel including a forensic nurse, a police detective, and a prosecutor, this session will focus on a case study involving a serial sexual offender, and details the involvement of multiple disciplines in investigating, building, and prosecuting the case. The session will focus on how these disciplines work together to prosecute sexually violent predators. This presentation is designed to be interactive, so please bring all the questions you wanted to ask about investigations but did not have the chance to.
This Webinar is open to all AFN Members! Looking forward to seeing you there!
