"Technical Evidence in Stalking Prosecutions: Where to Get It and How to Get It In" Webinar, February 24, 2015 from 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
Presented by Elaina Roberts, Program Attorney, Stalking Resource Center and John Wilkinson, Attorney Advisor, AEquitas
More than 7.5 million people in the United States are affected by stalking every year, with some studies indicating that one in four victims report use of technology by the offender. The use of personal computers, mobile devices, and other technology in stalking activity presents challenges for the prosecutor who must connect the activity to the defendant. Prosecutors must be familiar with the sources of available evidence, how to obtain it from technology providers, and how to present it effectively to a jury.
This webinar will cover the applicable rules of evidence and relevant case law associated with proving a technology-facilitated stalking case, and will provide strategies on when and how to introduce technical evidence and overcome common objections at trial.

Protection Order Practice for Prosecutors and Law Enforcement, April 14 - 15, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Recognizing the important role that prosecutors and law enforcement play in protection order enforcement, the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit, in partnership with AEquitas and the Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime, is pleased to offer the Protection Order Practice for Prosecutors and Law Enforcement training.
The goal of the training is to allow prosecutors and law enforcement to gain valuable information regarding full faith and credit and the evidence necessary to prosecute a defendant for violating a protection order, while recognizing the dynamics of stalking, and the role that multiple violations of orders can play in creating and substantiating a stalking charge.
This training will focus on law enforcement and prosecutors gaining valuable insight into the role that protection order violations play, whether the resulting charge is stalking (based on the protection order violations) or charging the violation of the order of protection.
