The research on female perpetrators of abuse against children has historically been lacking. As more is learned about this unique population of predators, police, and prosecutors must develop an increased understanding of the unique dynamics of these crimes. This workshop will examine several issues that surround the investigation and prosecution of female perpetrators.
Review existing research on female perpetrators.
Analyze several case studies and identify barriers to investigation and prosecution using real examples.
Discuss methods for successful prosecution in these difficult cases.
