Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2023
Time: 11 a.m. - Noon
Credits: 1.0 EP
In 2006 the FBI did an extensive investigation of Jeffrey Epstein and found that he had sexually assaulted 37 girls, some as young as 14, and prepared a 53-page indictment. However, Epstein was never charged in federal court and pleaded guilty to state charges where he served only 13 months in jail with work release.
In this presentation we will discuss the Epstein and Cosby prosecutions and other cases where the legal system protects the predator and not the victims. Further, we will discuss why this occurs, how to prevent these miscarriages of justice and what steps we can take as lawyers to ensure that the legal system treats victims of sexual assault with dignity and respect.
