WI DOJ to Host Training on How to Prosecute Domestic Violence Cases


LAKE DELTON — The Wisconsin Department of Justice Violence Against Women Resource Prosecutor (VAWRP) Project will be providing training on how to prosecute domestic violence cases on Friday, November 12 in Lake Delton. The training is made possible by federal grants that DOJ received through the Office of Justice Assistance.


The single-day training will teach prosecutors how to handle domestic violence cases with a victim-centered and defendant-focused approach.


8:30 am – 4:30 p.m.
Kay C. Mackesey Administration Building
Board Room
50 Wisconsin Dells Parkway South
Lake Delton


The trainings are designed to help prosecutors better educate law enforcement, juries, and judges about the actions of defendants and the responses of victims in these volatile cases and will cover issues such as charging decisions, firearm forfeitures, and trial techniques when victims recant, minimize, or fail to show for court.


If you would like to schedule an interview with Assistant Attorney General Jill Karofsky, who will be presenting the training, please contact Bill Cosh at (608) 266-1221.
