Prosecuting Human Trafficking Cases: Going Forward Without a Victim
A webinar on strategies for law enforcement and prosecutors to pursue evidence-based human trafficking investigations in which a victim is unable to participate.
Target Audience: Law enforcement personnel and prosecutors
Overall Objective: To provide charging strategies to support prosecutions where victims are unable to testify; demonstrate how “force, fraud, and coercion” can be established through physical evidence, non-hearsay statements, exceptions to hearsay, and digital evidence; analyze how forfeiture by wrongdoing can be used to admit victim statements as non-hearsay; and explore nontraditional means of conducting undercover operations which target traffickers instead of potential victims.
