by Expert Panel moderated by Genevieve Navar
3.0 hours, all languages
By means of presentations by experts in the field, this workshop will take participants through the various procedures involved in the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases, as well as provide some insight into defense aspects of such cases. In addition, attention will be given to linguistic and ethical issues which may arise in cases requiring interpreters, both in the investigation phase as well as in court. A panel discussion and exercises will raise the awareness of participants so that they can better work in the sensitive environment of such cases.
THE PANEL: Joan Risse retired as Chief Deputy District Attorney for Sonoma County. She was for years in charge of the prosecution of child sexual assault cases. Kristine Burk is an attorney for the Sonoma County Public Defender’s Office who has long experience defending sexual assault cases in the private and public field. Sandra Rigney, RN, retired from the Sonoma County Health Department and continues to do SART exams at the Redwood Children’s Center in Sonoma County. Armando Jauregui is an officer with the Santa Rosa Police Department who worked for many years in the sexual assault investigations. Genevieve Navar is a certified staff interpreter in Sonoma and chair of the CFI Ethics Committee.

Possible participation of other guest presenters in the field of interviewing and/or victim services.
