Williams v. Illinois and Forensic Evidence: The Bleeding Edge of Crawford @ Webinar
Dec 3 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by Teresa M. Garvey

The application of Crawford principles in the context of forensic evidence continues to plague the criminal justice system. The United States Supreme Court’s decision in Williams v. Illinois did not provide the guidance prosecutors had hoped for with regard to satisfying Sixth Amendment confrontation requirements in cases involving forensic evidence, where multiple analysts may be involved or where examining experts are no longer available to testify. The Williams decision raises more questions than it answers about when and how an expert may testify to conclusions based upon the opinions or work of other (non-testifying) experts or technicians.
This webinar will provide a review of the relevant case law, and will explore how trial prosecutors can present a case involving forensic testing that involves a multitude of technicians and experts. It will also address Williams’ impact on “cold cases,” in which original experts who performed autopsies and other forensic examinations and testing are no longer available for trial. This webinar will provide practical suggestions to trial prosecutors who must balance limited resources against the need to secure convictions that will withstand confrontation challenges on appeal.
Allied justice system professionals including but not limited to prosecutors, law enforcement officers, lab personnel, medical professionals, and judges are encouraged to view the recording.

Murder/Suicide and the role of Mental Health in Workplace Violence Prevention @ Webinar
Dec 9 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Are murderers and perpetrators of murder/suicide (terrorists) crazy?  Can we actually prevent the next violent attack or are we relegated to responding/reacting to violence? After Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School before taking his own life, in just the past week a 14-year-old boy murdered a beloved teacher in Massachusetts and a 12-year-old boy shoots and kills a beloved teacher in Nevada.  The Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, shot and killed 12 people before he was killed (suicide by cop?).
The most lethal of all aggressors, perpetrators of murder/suicide, are increasing at an alarming rate.  Are we creating a society of sociopaths?  We have lived under the illusion that mental health assessment, profiling and even threat assessment can reliably prevent the next shooting but history has told a different story.

Speaker:
John D. Byrnes, Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management will address these questions and offer reliable prevention solutions.  John D. Byrnes has over 4,700 Linkedin Security and Law Enforcement Connections with over 2,900 endorsements.
