    The essence of child neglect cases is proving in court that a caregiver acted in a way that resulted in harm to a child.  In most cases of neglect, however, the action of the caregiver is a lack of action entirely.  This results in the prosecution being in the unenviable position of proving a negative. During this presentation the presenters will discuss:

    • Reviewing the appropriate medical records of the victim & how to present them to a judge or jury.
    • Reviewing normal child growth & development & contrasting the normal with the victim.
    • Obtaining forensic interviews of other children in the home about their diet & those of the victim.
    • Leading a medical expert through the process of tying together the dangers of neglect & the potential for life long health consequences.
