SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. In this series of monthly shows we'll specifically take a look at institutional abuse. ~~ Jill's special guest tonight will be Kandis Ricard, an investigator in the Criminal Investigations Sex Crimes Unit in Conway, Arkansas. Kandis is an expert Forensic investigator charged with evaluating, processing and final disposition of evidence collected from crime scenes in cases assigned to her in the evaluation of sex crimes against children. She's been engaged in “sting operations” such as the case featured on Nancy Grace, “Public Defender, plots to have sex with a young boy. Our major focus this evening will be on evidence related to the reporting of child sexual abuse, by parents, by young children and by professional reporters. We need to teach reporters how to NOT CONTAMINATE EVIDENCE in the course of presenting allegations of child sexual abuse. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues. Every third Tuesday of the month, Jill will present special guests who'll explain the challenges they've experienced while fighting for their own rights, and /or for the rights of their children.
