Key Considerations in Preparing a Cold Case Sexual Assault for Trial

In a cold case sexual assault trial, prosecutors must recreate the reality and urgency of the crime for the jury because of the time that has passed since the sexual assault. This resource addresses the key considerations for prosecutors in preparing a cold case sexual assault for trial, including (1) linking the offender’s conduct to the victim’s trauma by using carefully developed theory and theme, (2) relying on victim testimony, and (3) corroborating witness and expert accounts.

Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.

This Web site is funded in whole or in part through a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. Neither the U.S. Department of Justice nor any of its components operate, control, are responsible for, or necessarily endorse, this Web site (including, without limitation, its content, technical infrastructure, and policies, and any services or tools provided).
