Victim Impact Considerations

October 17, 2017 2:00 p.m. Eastern, 60 minutes

Webinar Faculty: Micahel Ogul, Deputy Public Defender, Santa Clara Public Defender

About the Webinar:   Victim Impact Evidence is lethal. More than any other type of aggravation evidence, it is extremely powerful and can completely overwhelm the mitigation case. This presentation discusses a multi-faceted approach to dealing with victim impact, including investigation, victim outreach, discovery, motions to exclude or limit the admissibility or scope of victim impact evidence; addressing it in voir dire, opening and closing statements; cross-examining VIE witnesses or affirmatively presenting evidence on the topic; VIE videotapes; and jury instructions.


About the Faculty:   Coming soon.
