Program Abstract The program will show how experts can successfully meet the legal standards for conducting an investigation and presenting testimony in court, as well as meet the expectations of juries who unrealistically believe that CSI-type “smoking gun” forensic evidence is required for conviction. The module includes excerpts from a recent presentation by Guy E. “Sandy” Burnette, Esq. and Joseph P. Toscano, CFI, along with the demonstration of an expert witness cross-examination and a critical analysis of that examination to show what is required to present courtroom testimony effectively.
