The Summit County Prosecutor’s Office is holding its 4th annual “Responding to the Needs of Victims” conference on Friday, September 20th at the Akron/Fairlawn Hilton.

 

This year we have two great presenters – Anne Munch and Kim Case. 

This year’s training will focus on:

The role of alcohol and drugs on the question of consent.

How to corroborate criminal intent on the part of the offender and take blame off of victims.

Learning strategies for successful investigations and prosecutions.


Ann Munch, Esq. is a dedicated attorney, educator and judge with over 30 years’ experience advocating for victims of crime, with emphasis on sexual assault and domestic violence.   http://annemunch.org/

Kim Case is a renowned speaker recognized for her work creating a positive response for victims. A message of resiliency and hope, Kim shares her experience as a survivor of a sixteen hour hostage situation and multiple rapes which nearly took her life.

The Summit County Prosecutor’s Office is starting a new public awareness campaign called “Why I’m A Prosecutor”. The goal of this new campaign is to inform the community of what it’s like to be a prosecutor. From the best part, to the most difficult part, to the most memorable cases, we hope to provide insight to what it means to be a prosecutor and help keep the community safe.
