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

Many cases of child exploitation involve both Federal and Local Investigations agencies, multiple legal issues and prosecuting agencies. Each agency has very distinct levels of expertise and conversey limitations on investigating agencies, presectuion in both state and federal court, very young child victim(s) and child pornography on electronic device(s) Detective Bell worked the cases from beginning to end. I was one of many prosecutors that became involved with the cases well past sentencing. Where a crime involves computer/forensic issues there is certain protocol that should be followed as to how to preserve the date prior to forensic examination, especially as it relates to child pornography and where there appears to be a newly identified victim still at risk and unidentified. The legal issues as to be 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.

The Mission of the Fort Myers Criminal Justice Academy is:

The mission of the Criminal Justice Academy is to train Law Enforcement and Correctional Officers in accordance with the rules, regulations, and curriculum of the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission; to teach in a disciplined and dynamic training environment; and to deliver the curriculum through an innovative, experienced, enthusiastic, respected, and well supported instructional staff.

Philosophy

A disciplined learning environment is required in order to better simulate the demeanor necessary to be effective on the job.

  • We keep our training meaningful and relevant.
