Forensic Testimony Techniques (3.5 hours)
What would you expect to hear from forensic practitioners when asked what their least favorite job duty is? By far, hands down, everyone says testifying! Being an expert witness is daunting for most forensic practitioners. This workshop is designed to provide the necessary skills, tips, tricks, and confidence building tools to help you shake off those nerves and provide clear and concise testimony in any courtroom. Angela will primarily focus on latent print testimony; however, this workshop is suitable for anyone in the forensic and law enforcement disciplines. Angela will share her personal experiences of testifying throughout her career, from her very first court appearance, to her most recent trip “to the hot seat.” She will discuss best approaches for testifying after errors and how to answer questions regarding recent publications such as the AAAFS, NAS and PCAST reports. Angela has taken all of her testimony experience and the generic tips and tricks and tailored them to create a set of unique methods to abandon testimony fears. By implementing these techniques, the jury and members of the court will see nothing less than a confident, qualified, forensic professional the next time you are on the witness stand.

She has been employed with the WSP since March of 2016. Angela’s previous forensic experience includes both a Forensic Specialist and Latent Print Examiner with the Glendale Police Department and an Adjunct Professor at Glendale Community College in Southern California, and a Fingerprint Specialist for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in San Francisco. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Forensic Science from National University and her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology from Washington State University. Angela is currently serving as the Vice President of the Board for the Pacific Northwest Division-IAI. In her free time Angela spends as much of her time as she can exploring the great outdoors as well as volunteering with her K9 partner River for search and rescue and human remains detection missions.
