This presentation examines the history and development of evidence-based prosecution of domestic violence cases, and identifies how Crawford v. Washington and its progeny have impacted the prosecution of domestic violence cases with non-participating victims. There will be an emphasis on properly analyzing out-of-court statements to determine their admissibility at trial. The presentation also discusses tools and strategies for successfully prosecuting these difficult cases, and the practical steps necessary to achieve success.
