Please join the EJI webinar on August 23, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, to discuss the unique role of Elder Justice Units in prosecuting elder abuse cases. In response to the increase in cases, Elder Justice Units are being developed in state and local prosecution offices.
Presenters Michael Sharp, Assistant Attorney General in South Dakota, and Dave Lunzman, Special Assistant Attorney General in South Dakota, will describe the journey to create an Elder Justice Unit in South Dakota, finding support in the adage “If you build it, they will come.” AAG Sharp will also discuss two recent (closed) cases and how their Elder Justice Unit aided in those prosecutions.
