The Investigating Officer’s Direct Exam: Strategic and Tactical Considerations to Take Advantage of the IO’s Expertise (1/2018)
In this training bulletin, I’ll begin with the basics of direct examination, examining the function of the basic direct in a sexual assault trial. Following that, I’ll go beyond the basic direct to explore how the investigating officer’s trauma-informed investigation lends weight to the victim’s testimony. Building on the first two parts, I’ll discuss the strategy of offering the investigating officer’s testimony as an expert witness. Finally, I’ll explore the possibility of how robust an investigation can be when it is free, root and branch, from gender bias.
