Victims who have experienced abuse have unique challenges on the path to healing. When that abuse includes technology or a virtual component, the healing may be even more complex. This presentation will discuss some of those challenges and provide prosecutors with the tools needed to achieve justice for these vulnerable victims.
1. Provide research and examples of the types of trauma encountered by victims of technology facilitated abuse.
2. Discuss the handling of challenges such as resurfacing of images, long term trafficking and how to effectively communicate concerns.
3. Present alternative remedies available to victims of technology facilitated abuse such as restitution and forfeiture.
