Child Sexual Assault Evidence Pilot: Tips in Preparing Your Case

Child Sexual Assault Evidence Pilot: Tips in Preparing Your Case

Rebecca Suters, 24 February 2017.

This paper is not a paper considering the merits or otherwise of the Pilot program. Neither is it a paper looking at other states in Australia or other countries experiences with pre-recorded evidence. This paper is a practical look at the impact of the Pilot program on defence practitioners. It will hopefully highlight issues you need to be aware of and focus your mind on the preparation now required for the pre-recording of evidence. The pre-recording of evidence does in my view necessitate changes to the way we as defence practitioners traditionally prepare for a child sexual assault matter.
