Prosecutors in these cases must be prepared for the possibility that when the case goes to trial, the victim may be absent. This occurs not only by holding the offender accountable, but also assisting the victim s in these cases.
The presenter will discuss how offenders are best monitored in a specialized unit with officers trained on how to identify and coordinate proper services for all parties involved in the crime. Attendees will learn from the experiences of a department in a large metropolitan area of Georgia utilizing these successful approaches to hold offenders accountable and assist victims throughout the term of sentencing.

Another Tool of Manipulation Kelsey McKayMaya Gupta Animal cruelty and threats to harm pets are tactics commonly used by batterers to coerce and intimidate human family members. This workshop reviews the research linking animal cruelty and domestic violence, explores the dynamics of animal cruelty in the context of power and control, identifies ways that professionals working with both perpetrators and victims of violence can be more responsive to this issue, and explains how this awareness can improve victim safety and batterer accountability.
Specific strategies for both victim service agencies and criminal justice agencies will be presented, as well as a systems-level overview of how we can "widen the net" of coordinated community response to domestic violence by including animal control agencies and others who may encounter domestic violence cases through working with four-legged victims.
The workshop concludes by highlighting local resources such as "safe haven for animals" programs. Assessing Culpability in Human Trafficking Cases Jane AndersonBrooke Grona-Robb Human trafficking is a complex crime, often involving a wide range of criminal activity and victimization beyond that proscribed in trafficking statutes.
Criminal justice professionals can more effectively hold traffickers accountable by investigating and charging the full range of co-occurring crimes in which these offenders have engaged, particularly those that can be proved without victim testimony.
Additional considerations may be required where victims of trafficking have themselves engaged in criminal conduct. In such cases, a more nuanced assessment of culpability is required in order to make appropriate, ethical charging decisions, and to determine the appropriate disposition at sentencing.
This workshop will discuss crimes that commonly accompany trafficking activity and outline the strategic advantages of charging those offenses. The presenters will suggest strategies for analyzing the culpability of victims who have engaged in criminal activity and appropriate considerations for making decisions regarding charging and sentencing.

The presenter will also provide guidance on how to use these techniques in a multiple family group setting. Back by Popular Demand: How do we balance the reverence needed with this issue while working to engage an audience to not only stay awake, but be fired up to engage in making change?
Topics examined include the role of the attorney, common errors made by custody and psychological evaluators, destructive myths and discriminatory attitudes that influence judicial behavior, and public misconceptions about custody.
The presenters then move into examining how to right these wrongs through strategies for empowering battered women, training attorneys and courts personnel, and building a powerful grassroots movement for family court reform. Responses to Men Who Batter Lundy Bancroft Extensive research findings indicate that improving police and prosecutorial response to men who batter is the single best approach to reducing domestic violence perpetration.
