On Friday, February, 16th, 2015, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is offering a CLE course on jurors and sex offenses. Here is a brief program description.
When discussing sex offenses with jurors, we defense lawyers must embrace, acknowledge, and own the things that scare us the most; the name of the charges, the child who will say "Grandpa did this.," the woman who will say, "That's the man who raped me." Rather than run from these "bad facts" and frightening witnesses we must embrace the situation and make it our friend. We must Embrace The Suck.
