“Challenging Issues In Domestic Violence Cases” will focus on some of the more difficult issues that arise in criminal cases involving allegations of domestic violence. You will hear from an Appeals Court judge about the more significant recent appellate decisions in this frequently litigated area. You will also hear from experienced practitioners, both prosecutors and defense attorneys, about the legal, tactical and ethical issues that can arise when handling these often complex cases—from 58A hearings through to sentencing considerations, including such trial issues as voir dire questions, Fifth Amendment issues, admissibility of social media evidence and forfeiture by wrongdoing.
