Invest. & Prosecution Child Sexual Abuse 2015

In the high-stakes world of prosecuting child sexual abuse, a prosecutor ­typically must work with little or no medical evidence, medical experts with varying degrees of expertise, a jury panel in need of education about the crime, and a victim who may (understandably) crumble on the stand. The 4th edition of this helpful manual, updated by Harris County Assistant DA’s Terese M. Buess and Anshu “Sunni” Mitchell , walks prosecutors of all ­experience levels through the case, from investigation to punishment phase of trial.
