dri3570 - Avoiding Consequences When the Medical Examiner Fails to Follow Science and Law


Aug 31, 2020 12:00pm ‐ Aug 31, 2020 1:30pm

Description

Law enforcement non-firearm, temporal arrest-related deaths (ARDs) occur, on average, fewer than once during the careers for all involved, including the medical examiner (ME)/forensic pathologist (FP). Specific ARD causal elements often have very high learning obstacles. In these rare incidents, law enforcement and ME investigators, and MEs/FPs often make significant errors. The ME/FP conclusions are often improperly conflated and acted upon. In very rare such ARDs, these errors initiate a domino effect foreseeably resulting in very negative consequences for law enforcement. This program presents examples of such rare events and guidance in ARD investigations and ME/FP reporting on avoiding such unjust consequences.

Who Should Attend

  • Law enforcement ARD defense attorneys
  • Law enforcement and medical examiner ARD investigators, supervisors, trainers, or executives
  • Prosecutors who deal with ARDs

What You Will Learn

  • Understand the frequency of non-firearm law enforcement temporal arrest-related deaths (ARDs)
  • Identify foreseeable consequences when a medical examiner (ME) fails to follow the science
  • Recognize the differences between and ME’s opinion and methodologically reliable conclusions
  • Evaluate ME ARD errors for foreseeable negative consequences
  • Actions that can be taken before ME's opinions to pre-report neutralize ME errors
