DEFENDER SERVICES OFFICE
TRAINING DIVISION
Access to these recorded training sessions and any accompanying materials is restricted to employees of federal public and community defender organizations; CJA panel attorneys who accept court appointments to federal criminal cases; and investigators, paralegals and other defense team members who work on CJA panel cases.
At the end of a hard-fought sentencing you breathe a sigh of relief and a start to gather up your file. But wait!  The judge is still talking!  By checking out early, you may have doomed your client to years (or, in the case of some offenders, a lifetime!) of oppressive conditions of supervised release.  Supervised release conditions are among the most litigated aspects of sentencing today.  This session provides strategies for fighting special conditions, particularly the onerous conditions imposed on clients with current or past sex offenses. For these offenders there are issues abound – internet access, employment, housing, child visitation, and even access to movies and magazines.  Learn the tricks of overzealous courts and probation officers and gain new tactics of your own as you struggle to keep your clients free upon release.  

These presentations were recorded August 18-19, 2011, during the Multi-Track Seminar in Seattle, Washington.

The seminar was designed to offer in-depth instruction in a variety of substantive criminal defense areas. The five tracks for 2011 in Seattle were: 1) Immigration with a focus on Padilla 2) Sentencing in a post-Bookerworld; 3) Experts, Forensics & Science; 4) Computer Crimes and Handling of Electronic Discovery; and 5) Drugs, Guns and Money. Tracks 1-4 were presented in four distinct hour-long time blocks. Those sessions were presented on Thursday, August 18, 2011 and then repeated on Friday, August 19, 2011. This design provided seminar participants the opportunity to attend two of the four separate tracks that took place on Thursday and Friday.

On Saturday, August 20, 2011, seminar participants had the opportunity to attend both plenary and small group breakout sessions for the 5th track, Drugs, Guns & Money. These Saturday sessions addressed topics of general interest and importance to criminal defense practitioners. Each session was presented twice so that attendees were able to attend at least two areas of interest.

The following Multi-Track presentations were recorded and are available for viewing:
  • Facebook, Myspace, The Joys/Dangers of Internet Social Networks and How to Use Them as a Litigation Tool
  • Fingerprints: Understanding & Challenging Science
  • Firearm and Toolmark Identification
