Duration: 60 Minutes
Module 1 Resources
Recorded June 19, 2017
Unit 1 Investigation and Prosecution of Elder Abuse Presentation
Unit 2 Barriers to Investigating and Prosecuting Elder Abuse Video

Drawing upon his 21 years experience of prosecuting both physical and financial elder abuse and neglect felony cases, Paul will highlight some common misconceptions that often hinder the pursuit of justice for elderly victims. He will provide examples of how such barriers can be avoided and will emphasize the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach that should be led by local prosecutors in every jurisdiction. He will confront likely “excuses” as to why certain cases cannot be prosecuted such as “It’s just a civil matter” or “She has dementia and therefore won’t make for an effective witness” or “he gave the money voluntarily so there is no crime."
