How to Have It ALL: You Can Be Happy and Change the World
In the wrap up plenary session, Casey Gwinn will challenge us to apply what we have learned throughout the conference, give us core principles for staying healthy in this work, and offer practical tips for working together with others to change the world for victims and their families. Casey, who has presented for the Summit over it’s 14-year history, is always inspiring, and never loses his sense of humor.

When Fantasy Turns to Reality: The White Case
Brian Pearson and Christine Landers
This case study will discuss what began as an ICAC sting operation -- and quickly evolved into a sex-abuse investigation where victims were immediately indentified. This case study will outline the investigation into the abuse and also include the investigation into the victim’s mother, Barbara White, who chose the suspect over her own daughter. This case ended in the prosecution of the abuser and the prosecution of Barbara White. The case study will highlight the cooperation between law enforcement, Department of Human Services, the Oregon Department of Justice ICAC and the local District Attorney’s Office.
Update on Infant Safe Sleep and Death Scene Investigations
Dr. Chris Young and Dr. Linda Lorenz
Thirty years ago, parents would just hope their babies survived their first 6 months of life and not fall victim to "crib death." They were helpless. Although the rate of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in the U.S. has declined more than 50% since the start of the 1994 Back-to-Sleep campaign, the rate has plateaued and SIDS remains the leading cause of postnatal infant mortality. More recently, research has shown there are high risk sleep environments that increase the risk of "sudden unexplained infant deaths." We know there are many things parents can do to keep their babies safe. We will review the most recent Oregon Health Department and American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations and discuss their application.
Sex Offenders: What Judges, Lawyers, Investigators and Child Advocates Should Know
Cory Jewell-Jensen, MS
Participants will examine (via film clips of interviews with various types of sex offenders) some of the specific strategies used to target, seduce and exploit children and adults. Information was collected from approximately 1,400 sex offenders who were involved in long-term, court mandated sex offender treatment. Topics include offender descriptions of “grooming” tactics (how and why they target certain children, families, and youth serving agencies, seduce child victims and adult caretakers and inhibit disclosure, detection and reporting). The speaker will also address the possible rate if detected vs. undetected sexual crimes occurring in our communities, "cross over" offending behavior, reoffense vs. recidivism rates and possible treatment outcomes.
Direct Examination of Computer Forensic Examiner
This session will focus on the nuts and bolts of presenting a forensic examiner at trial. It will highlight possible exhibits that can be used to assist in the explanation of technology devices and computer forensics during the foundation portion of the examination. Additionally, the lecture will provide tips for effectively presenting computer forensic evidence at trial.
Mobile Technology Analysis
Whether it is an Apple, Android or Windows device, it is highly likely it contains evidence for your case. But what about GPS devices, tablets and gaming systems? During the presentation attendees will learn about common ways for analysis to be conducted, high and low-tech ways to gather information from non-traditional devices, the circumstances around mobile device "forensics," and emerging trends in mobile device technology.
