Pretrial Motions: Admitting and Excluding Evidence in the Prosecution of Sexual Abuse in Confinement

For cases involving sexual abuse in confinement, many of the same pretrial motions apply that are relevant to any sexual abuse case. Also applicable are motions directly related to confinement, including, for example, motions involving the criminal records of the defendant or victim, prison files, and other behavior or character evidence. Particularly in sexual abuse cases, prosecutors need to be proactive in filing motions to exclude irrelevant and misleading information and to admit crucial evidence in their case-in-chief. This webinar enables prosecutors and allied criminal justice professionals to better anticipate issues and evidence that need to be addressed prior to trial; file and argue pretrial motions; and respond to defense motions.
