​NIJ Audio: Prosecuting Cases of Elder Abuse

NIJ Conference Panel
June 2010

This panel will feature NIJ-funded research that has direct, practical implications for the prosecution of elder abuse cases. Panelists will present findings from a study of prosecutors in three states that examined the factors that influenced their decisions to prosecute elder financial abuse cases. The panel will also provide the results from an evaluation of five innovative court-based models that target perpetrators of elder abuse. A prosecutor from King County (located in Seattle) will discuss how these studies can assist criminal justice system professionals in pursuing cases of elder abuse.
