Child Exploitation complete investigations through trial testimony in Federal and State Court

Many cases of child exploitation involve both federal and local investigation agencies, multiple legal issues and prosecuting agencies. Each agency as very distinct levels of expertise and conversely limitations on their abilities. We would like to present cases from beginning to end that involved civilians, local agencies and federal investigative agencies, prosecution in both State and Federal Court, very young child victim(s) and child pornography on an electronic device(s). Detective Bell worked the cases from beginning to the end and was one of the many prosecutors that became involved with the cases well past sentencing. When a crime involves computer/forensic issues there is a certain protocol that should be followed as to how to preserve the data prior to forensic examination, especially as it relates to child pornography where there appears to be a newly identified victim still at risk and unidentified. The legal issues as to the retention of evidence and the search warrant affidavit criteria become critical and require communication by all agencies involved from the beginning. The class participants would work the case(s) from the beginning with the guidance of Detective Patricia Bell and ASA Francine Donnorummo. Class participants will prepare warrants, subpoenas, and preservation letters. The last portion of the program would be preparing the participants to testify in both Motions to Suppress the Evidence and as well as trial.
