Please join the EJI webinar on September 6, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, as Jane Walsh, Director of At-Risk Protection, Denver District Attorney’s Office, discusses the concept of consent, which underlies a range of actions in criminal and civil law, including gifting money

In the context of financial exploitation, prosecutors and law enforcement will regularly be faced with many situations where a victim is aware that money or assets are being transferred to a suspect, and is apparently consenting to this happening. It is easy for incorrect assumptions to be made about consent, for example, labeling a financial gift as a poor decision rather than the result of fraud or some other action. Learn more about the dynamics of these cases, how capacity factors in, and thoughts on tactics and strategies to consider when building and trying these cases.
