Working towards the eradication of sexual assault In the State of Indiana

INCASA is proud to announce the sixth “Trial by Jury” advanced trial advocacy training. This conference will combine community learning activities and job-specific training in an effort to elicit a systematic response to sexual assault within the criminal justice system. INCASA hopes to continue this training in the future, each year focusing on a different theme. This years theme will be “Intimate partner—same sex” sexual assault. In addition to the mock trial, the Judge, Prosecution and Defense will take the time to explain the ethics, judgments, and the rationale behind decisions both the Defense and the State make during the trial process. The training is aimed for the entire team of professionals: law enforcement, forensic nursing, prosecutor, and victim advocacy. Each participant will leave this trial with specific training concerning their roles in cases of sexual assaults committed against same sex partners.
