In 2014 the WI legislature expanded prosecutors' ability to introduce evidence of prior acts by defendants in DV and SA cases.  It is hoped that the broader standard will result in increased offender accountability.  It may mean advocate expert witnesses will more frequently be called to explain additional contextual material at trial, and victims will be asked to provide more information than in the past. Please join Assistant Attorneys General Audrey Swierawski and Miriam Falk to discuss the impact of this change on victims and advocates. See Details to register!
