Crimes Against Elders

What the District Attorney’s Elder Protection Unit Looks for When Deciding if Criminal Charges Can be Filed
Sonoma County’s elderly population has increased dramatically in recent years and will only continue to grow in the years to come. Unfortunately, crimes against the elderly are also on the rise. This presentation will give you an understanding of what “elder abuse” is, and what our office looks for when deciding whether or not to file criminal charges.

Topics include:
~ The different types of physical and financial abuse against an elder, and the legal elements required to prove those crimes,
~ Common warning signs of possible physical or financial abuse, and
~ How the civil practitioner can assist law enforcement in order to facilitate criminal prosecution.
