[1] Pitfalls in Forensic Science--Lessons Learned in High Profile Cases

PRESENTERS: Cyril Wecht, MD, JD, CMI-V, CFP and Henry Lee, PhD, FACFEI, DABFE

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 09:30am--11:30am

ABSTRACT: The discussions in this session will be based upon the personal, professional involvement of Dr. Wecht and Dr. Lee in various capacities. Cases involving major political figures, including President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne (Senator Ted Kennedy), Ron Brown, and Vincent Foster will be discussed. Inadequate post-mortem examination by nonforensic pathologists, or the failure to have an autopsy performed, will be emphasized. Incompetent handling of complex cases by attorneys who do not comprehend the complex medical and forensic aspects of a homicide case, and who therefore fail to consult with appropriate experts, will be reviewed. In addition, high profile cases involving celebrities and non-celebrity cases, which have come to be very well-known and extremely controversial will be presented, including Elvis Presley, Tammy Wynette, Jeffrey McDonald, Jean Harris, Sunny Von Bulow, Chandra Levy, Waco Branch Davidian Fire, Od. Simpson, JonBenet Ramsey, Anna Nicole and Daniel Smith, Laci Peterson, Phil Spector, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and others. These are cases in which complex forensic scientific issues were of critical importance in determining whether the death was a homicide, accident, or suicide. Overarching matters regarding the various forensic scientific specialties will be reviewed. Suggestions regarding proper medical-legal, forensic scientific investigation will be offered for physicians, attorneys, forensic scientists, law enforcement officials, and academic programs, and the National Academy of Science Report of February 2009 will be discussed.

[2] CSI Odontology

PRESENTERS: James Hutson, DDS, FACFEI, DABFD, CMI-V and Robert Byrd, DDS, FACEFEI, DABFM, DABFE

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 09:30am--11:30am

ABSTRACT: Odontology crime scene investigation constitutes scientific methods, physical evidence collection, and deductive reasoning in problem solving a series of events that encompass a crime scene and its victims. The manner in which a crime scene is examined and processed is critical to the success of the investigation. Evidence that is missed, contaminated, and corrupted can have a devastating effect on the case legally by keeping justice from being served and preventing closure for the victim's next of kin.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Discuss the significance of odontology in crime scene investigations, and

2. Discuss an applicable rule of evidence introduction which governs the science in the courts.

[6] The Civil Management of Sex Offenders in New York State

PRESENTER: Paul Etu, PsyD, FACFEI, DABPS

CEs: 2.0 American Psychological Association, NBCC, CBBS, ASWB, ACFEI

TIME: 01:00pm--03:00pm

ABSTRACT: The NYS Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act (SOMTA) became effective in 2007. The legislation created a process for the civil management of certain sex offenders upon completion of their prison terms. SOMTA also requires risk assessment of sex offenders by qualified staff upon their admission to prison, as well as prison-based sex offender treatment to be provided by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS), including residential treatment. SOMTA established a process to review certain sex offenders in the custody of "Agencies with Jurisdiction" for the purposes of civil management. The law requires the NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) to evaluate and recommend individuals for civil management and provide treatment to individuals found by the court to be in need of civil management. More specifically, the statute provides for the Commissioner of Mental Health to designate multidisciplinary staff, case review teams, and psychiatric examiners to identify potential persons suffering from a mental abnormality that predisposes them to sexual recidivism and who may require civil management. It also requires OMH to develop treatment plans for persons released to the community under "Strict and Intensive Supervision and Treatment (SIST)" and to establish secure treatment facilities for persons deemed "dangerous sex offenders requiring confinement (DSORC)" (NYS OMH Annual Report on SOMTA, 2011).

NYS is the only jurisdiction of the 20 states, DC and the federal government which have such laws in place to have developed and fully implemented a two-level system of civil management of recidivistic sex offenders, including in-patient confinement and community-based placement. Out of the more than 1600 individuals reviewed by the SOMTA team annually, now only about 4% are recommended for civil management. This presentation will discuss this process in detail, with an emphasis on the assessment, treatment, and legal issues involved.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Describe the evaluative process used by NYS in the assessment of sex offenders under SOMTA,

2. List the common assessment techniques used in the assessment of sex offenders in the civil management process,

3. Discuss the static and dynamic risk factors statistically related to the risk of sexual re-offense,

4. Discuss the most common treatment methodologies used with recidivistic sex offenders, and

5. Describe the basic legal issues related to the civil management of sex offenders.

[8] Analyzing and Interpreting Behavior in the Serial Murder and Sexual Homicide Crime Scene: How to Operationalize Modus Operandi, Ritual, and Staging Behavior

PRESENTER:

Mark Safarik, MS, VSM, Supervisory Special Agent, FBI Ret.

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 03:15pm--05:15pm

ABSTRACT: This lecture will provide violent crime investigators, crime scene technicians, medical examiners, coroners, forensic nurses, and attorneys assigned to investigate, process, conduct examinations, and prosecute such cases a framework for analyzing the dynamic interaction that occurs between the offender, victim, and scene and then using that analysis to interpret crime attributes such as motive, victimology, risk level, cause of death, weapon use, injury severity, and the degree of planning and organization. Examination of these various behavioral attributes will be applied to complex homicide and sexual assault cases, and examines behavioral linkage in serial homicide cases. This lecture will also include discussion of investigative and prosecutorial considerations and the awareness of the important aspects of evidence collection and processing.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. List the three main behavioral manifestations identified at violent crime scenes,

2. Identify the three main purposes that an offender engages in behaviors further identified as his modus operandi (MO), and

3. Define Staging behavior and its significance at a crime scene when recognized by law enforcement.

[9] Behavioral Forensic Assessment: Using Applied Behavior Analysis in Forensic Psychology

PRESENTER: Douglas Ruben, PhD, FACFEI, DABPS

CEs: 2.0 ASWB, CBBS, NBCC, ACFEI

TIME: 03:15pm--05:15pm

ABSTRACT: Advances in police forensic analysis account for widely used evidence-detection procedures pinpointing relevant facts traceable to a crime. A similar scientific process of elimination appears lagging in forensic psychological evaluation, where abstract constellations of psychopathology remain unreducible to specific units of behavioral evidence, and are not causally connective to surrounding events. The diagnostic nosology of DSMIV-TR offers a promising step, but falls short of criteria to classify criminal behavior by its stimulus-response relationships. By "operationalizing" criminal behavior, quantifiable distinction occurs between types of responses (concurrent, sequential) and types of stimulus conditions under which criminal behaviors are probable to occur. Functionally selecting and isolating patterns of behavior accomplishes two goals. First, it strengthens measurement and prediction of crime recidivism. Second, it organizes behaviors into a logically meaningful and causal sequence supporting the forensic psychologist's expert testimony. This application of operationalism in forensic evaluations is called Behavioral Forensic Analysis (BFA).

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Identify six behavioral standards for empirically derived forensic evaluations;

2. Identify and describe behavioral deficits, excesses, liabilities, and assets;

3. Describe the eight parts of a functional analysis relative to individual assessment;

4. Identify reliable symptoms of positive/negative reinforcement, and positive/negative punishment;

5. Differentiate topography from function of behavior, response sequences from concurrent responses;

6. Give examples of translating psychometric results into units of measurable behavior;

7. Give four behavioral uses of IQ tests; and

8. Explain the role of reliability assessment in behavioral analysis.

CEs: 2.0 NASBA, ACFEI TIME: 08:00am--10:00am

DELIVERY METHOD: Group Live

FIELD OF STUDY: Specialized Knowledge and Applications

PREREQUISITES: None

PROGRAM LEVEL: Intermediate

ADVANCED PREPARATION: None

ABSTRACT: There is no doubt that advancing technologies will eventually make paper currency and coins obsolete. The emergence of the digital age has brought about digital currencies. There are clear advantages to the use of digital currencies, but it's the disadvantages and the criminal mind exploitation of such that is mostly unknown. This session will examine the criminal involvement as well as the limited U.S. legislation, and regulate to help curb such crime. How digital currencies can be funneled into the U.S. and exchanged for U.S. dollars with little risk of detection will be discussed. In addition, this session will cover how digital currency is a perfect avenue of money laundering. The presenters will discuss the emergence of a new, virtually untraceable digital currency that has the capability of funding terrorist activities. Other topics to be covered include: a secret website designed for the purpose of buying and selling illegal drugs with the use of only the virtually untraceable digital currency; and Ponzi schemes, how they work, how to spot them, famous Ponzi schemers, and how to minimize the possibility of getting scammed or "roped" into one.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Discuss digital currencies,

2. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of digital currencies,

3. Describe how a Ponzi scheme works, and

4. Explain how to spot a Ponzi scheme.

[11] Explosions, Collapses, Crashes, Mass Devastation: Forensic Engineering & Technology is There

PRESENTER: George Frank, FACFEI, DABFE, Cr.FA

ADDITIONAL PRESENTERS: John Petrelli, FACFEI, DABFET, CFC; James Waltz, MBA, FACFEI, DABFET; Jennifer Wagner, PhD; and Cam Cope, DABFE, DABFET

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 08:00am--10:00am

ABSTRACT: The field of forensic engineering and technology covers a very wide spectrum from the familiar civil, structural, electrical, soil, and chemical, to the more modern sciences of nuclear, microbial, software, and tissue. Some of the most significant events over the past years, the Hyatt Regency walkway collapse, Columbia Space Shuttle, TWA Flight 800, Northridge Earthquake, Oklahoma Bombing, 9-11, and the 1-35 Bridge failure all have had intensive forensic investigations involving specialists in engineering and technology, yet little media coverage was reported on the effort put forth by these professionals as to what their findings were and/or how such findings would affect future development of similar projects, advanced engineering including new and more creative three dimensional design methodologies and continued expansion in determining the environmental influences on new and old materials. Events affecting the field of forensic engineering and technology are an everyday occurrence affecting the lives of many, from the single home owner to major corporations and governmental agencies, and run into the hundreds of billions of dollars every year. Surprisingly, many events requiring the skills of a qualified forensic engineer are not met, due to the limited number of professionals available in the many fields of Forensic Engineering and Technology. This session will provide information on the importance of the field of forensic engineering and technology through a series of actual cases.

[12] The C-IQ: Varieties of Criminal Intelligence

PRESENTER: Katherine Ramsland

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 08:00am--10:00am

ABSTRACT: Since the 19th century, we've sought ways to penetrate a criminal's mind, based on the assumption that comprehension offers a tool for stopping--even curing--them. From Lombroso to psychoanalysis to profiling to brain research, we're still seeking a way to quantify offender intelligence (C-IQ), because some street-smart offenders still elude whatever the devices measure. This seminar will present the notion that predators have their own form of intelligence, and while some assessment devices have value, none have yet shown us what a high C-IQ might achieve. We'll be looking at the various instruments designed to penetrate the criminal mind, attempts by mental health practitioners to crystallize criminological insights, the value of behavioral evidence, and what neuroscience today tells us. The target criminal population (male and female) will include sexual predators, healthcare killers, stalkers, "dupicians" subclinical psychopaths, and serial killers.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. List the types of assessment instruments that try to measure or describe criminal intelligence,

2. Critique ineffective approaches to offender intelligence,

3. Reference recent studies on the associations between brain scans and violent behavior,

4. Recognize and counter the strategies of narcissistic immunity, and

5. Devise an effective method for assessing criminal intelligence relevant to a specific professional context.

[13] Identification on Non-Accidental Injuries in Children

PRESENTER: Sue Gabriel, EdD, MSN, MFS, FACFEI, CFN

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 10:15am--12:15pm

ABSTRACT: Non-accidental childhood injuries occur daily, affecting tens of thousands of children annually. The evaluation of suspected child abuse involves many challenges and uses a complexity of decision-making skills by multidisciplinary team members. Health care providers can play a large part on this team when they are skilled in identifying injuries in children that are intentional and non-accidental in nature. It is important to be knowledgeable in normal growth and development, recognize disparities in the story of how the injury took place, display cultural competency, possess knowledge of normal child care practices, awareness of how parents react to the injury and its severity, and if there is a time delay in seeking treatment for the injury. Health care providers at all levels should be trained in the recognition and appropriate documentation of non-accidental injuries in children.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. List various non-accidental injuries seen in children,

2. Define what are normal and abnormal injuries seen in children,

3. Identify disparities in the story versus the injury, and

4. List ways in which they can increase documentation skills of injuries.

[14] Middle East Awareness Training for Law Enforcement

PRESENTER: Nia Ackvan, JD

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 10:15am--12:15pm

ABSTRACT: The Middle East's population currently exceeds 300 million, and like any growing region, cross cultural understanding is a significant factor when dealing with the people of this region. However, there are many preconceptions and stereotypes of the Middle East that may obscure a thorough understanding of the region's cultural dynamics. As such, this session is designed to provide law enforcement officials with some of tools needed to ensure they gain a more comprehensive understanding of the region itself and the values, attitudes, and motivations associated with the people of this region. This, in turn, will aid law enforcement officials in establishing the necessary rapport needed to effectively elicit information when conducting interviews and interrogations on Middle Eastern subjects.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Discuss the various deposition styles and how to prepare for a deposition.

2. Explain why depositions are conducted.

3. Describe the proper way to testify in a courtroom.

4. Analyze the importance of clearly communicating with retaining attorney during the life of the case.

PREREQUISITES: None

PROGRAM LEVEL: Intermediate

ADVANCED PREPARATION: None

CEs: 2.0 NASBA, ACFEI TIME: 10:15am--12:15pm

ABSTRACT: Forensic examiners have specific training and experience that allows them to address compliance measures in unique ways. Forensic examiners who are also CPAs have specific training in matters of internal control, producing the financial results of operations, data collection, and insuring the reliability of that data and financial information. This session uses psychopathic and socio-pathic attributes to study how individuals can manipulate organizational data and financial operations to defeat internal control systems and influence organizational compliance.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After the presentation, the participant should be better able to:

1. Describe the general control, data, and financial environment relating to compliance,

2. List the 20 general attributes of psychopathic and sociopathic behavior,

[17] George Zimmerman & Trayvon Martin: 911 Audio Tapes Analysis & Forensic Voice Indentification

PRESENTERS: Tom Owen, FACFEI, DABFE, DABRE and Jennifer Owen, DABRE, DABFE

CEs: 2.0 ACFEI TIME: 01:4Spin--03:45pm

ABSTRACT: Mr. Owen is listed as a witness in the upcoming trial of George Zimmerman in Florida that involves the death Of Trayvon Martin. This presentation will trace Mr. Owen's early conclusions in March based on aural spectrographic and biometric voice analysis that Zimmerman was not the voice yelling for help in the 911 call and that Zimmerman did not say the word "coons" in his 911 call, but said the word "punks". His technical methodology and analysis of voice disguises, whispers, and screams will also be discussed in detail.

[18] Coordinating the Work of a Forensic Engineer into the Expert Forensic Report on Economic Damages Related to a Fire Event and in Defense of a Claim of Subrogation

PRESENTER: Eric Kreuter, PhD, CPA, FACFEI, DABFA

DELIVERY METHOD: Group Live

FIELD OF STUDY: Specialized Training and Applications

PREREQUISITES: None

PROGRAM LEVEL: Intermediate

ADVANCED PREPARATION: None

CEs: 2.0 NASBA, ACFEI TIME: 01:45pm--03:45pm

ABSTRACT: This session will discuss a recent case involving a fire in a large building where the damage claim was paid by an insurance carrier; then the carrier filed a claim of subrogation against a contractor who then sought to refute the merits of the claim and the calculation of damages. This effort required tight coordination of two fields of forensic expertise: accounting and engineering. Highlights of the process from selling the engagement to writing the expert reports will be covered, breaking new ground at ACFEI to present a case with combined expertise spread over multiple experts.
