Prosecuting Domestic Violence Sexual Assaults: How Collaboration Between Prosecution, Victim Advocates, Community Agencies and Law Enforcement Will Ensure Best Results For Victims

  • Prosecuting domestic violence sexual assaults can be particularly difficult. Not only are there the common myths about how a survivor should act in the wake of sexual assault, the misconceptions are compounded when the assault occurs in the context of an intimate relationship. Complex family dynamics and prior DV abuse often add to the complexity of prosecuting these cases. This workshop will focus on the importance of a multi-agency collaborative model in order to ensure the best results for survivors of DV sexual assaults – from the initial outcry all the way through prosecution.
