Child Abuse Prevention Month: Tales from the Apparatus-The Teddy Guzman Story available to view
During the month of April, Child Abuse Prevention Month, CPCM is opening access to view 2022 Community Response to Child Abuse Conference Sessions! This is an opportunity for those who were unable to attend the conference to access these valuable training sessions.
Tales from the Apparatus: The Teddy Guzman Story
This session is available to view online April 10-15.
In 2017, what started as a childhood slumber party turned into a multi-victim rape investigation. Follow the case of Theodore Guzman from first disclosure through trial (and a re-trial!) after an extensive investigation yields four child sexual assault victims. A shocking case of disappointment, surprise, tears and ultimately triumph – it is ultimately the story of why we do what we do. This presentation will highlight the value of medical evidence, forensic interviews, foster parents, social workers, investigators and prosecutors (all of us, whom the defense team called “The Apparatus” in closing arguments) and why a multi-disciplinary approach and team are invaluable to the protection of child sexual assault victims.
