Introduction of Speaker – John Schrot
Speaker – Kym Worthy, Wayne County Prosecutor
  • Spoke about a few emerging trends which included: 
  • Rape Kit Investigations
    • 11,331 untested rape kits discovered in 2009 and only 600 left to test
    • As a result of testing these kits, 85 convictions have taken place and there are leads in 39 other states  
  • Human Trafficking
    • 10-12 human trafficking cases in the last 3 months
    • Asked for two full-time prosecutors as more resources are needed for these cases
  • Sexual Assault
  • Elder & Senior Living
  • Domestic Violence
    • 8,000 cases a year and generally issue warrants for half 
    • More prevalent between teenagers recently
  • Body Cameras
    • Detroit Police have stated that all officers will be fitted with body cameras by the end of the year
    • Creates some problem for the justice system as it requires a lot more hours for prosecutor to make determinations on a case when there are 7-8 different tape records of a crime (i.e drug raid)
