Information:
Sexual abuse in confinement has persistently presented tremendous challenges to investigators and prosecutors because of internal and external barriers to reporting, including the behaviors, actions, and decision-making power of first responders that may result in the failure to make an official report to law enforcement. Additional challenges include issues related to evidence collection and retention, identification of witnesses, and multi-level biases against inmates.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Prison Rape Elimination Act and recently released national standards that relate directly to a victim-centered, offender-focused investigation and prosecution of a sexual abuse in confinement. The webinar will discuss victim behaviors generally and in the specific context of the dynamics inherent to a correctional setting. It will also focus on offender tactics, including grooming, isolation, threats, concealment or destruction of evidence, intimidation, the use of allies, and other coercive tactics.
