EVAWI has developed a new training presentation to explain how these scenarios unfold, highlighting factors that distinguish an interview conducted with a victim versus a suspect in a criminal investigation, and reviewing the research on false confessions. The presentation concludes with a discussion of how this injustice can be prevented, by following best practices for sexual assault investigations, victim interviews and prosecution. You are welcome to use these materials to present Raped, Then Jailed: The Risks of Prosecution for Falsely Reporting Sexual Assault. We offer a PowerPoint slide presentation, along with detailed trainer notes and supplemental resources for background information and additional tools. You can also watch an earlier version of the presentation as a recorded webinar given by EVAWI’s CEO and Founder, Sergeant Joanne Archambault (Retired, San Diego Police Department).
