Pattern Cross-Examination Trial Strategy & Resource Guide - Book
In sexual assault trials, many prosecution witnesses see themselves as advocates and members of the prosecution team. Some witnesses will do whatever is necessary to win and send the defendant to prison. This may include lying, exaggerating, and misstating facts. NACDL’s Pattern Cross-Examination for Sexual Assault Cases was written for criminal defense lawyers on the front lines in the war on sexual assault. It contains pattern questions that can be used to dominate prosecution witnesses and level the playing field at trial. Designed to give defense counsel cross-examination questions that can be easily modified and used in a variety of sexual assault cases, this resource will help defense lawyers cross-examine challenging witnesses without having to reinvent the wheel with each new case. It contains thousands of questions to effectively cross-examine a variety of witnesses, to include: the alleged victim; crime scene investigators; sexual assault forensic examiners; DNA experts, hostile witnesses, and more. It covers a range of topics including: selective memory; victim injury; motive to lie; false allegations; false confessions; proper evidence handling; and more. Many of the questions are based on medical and law enforcement textbooks and training manuals that are used throughout the United States. The questions provided serve as a starting point. Because every case is different, the cross-examiner should modify the questions based on the facts of their case. This Trial Guide is not a textbook on the theories of cross-examination, rather, it provides sample questions based on fact patterns commonly encountered in sexual assault cases.
