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.
