Alternatives to CCTV

In lesson six, presenters Mary Ahan and Christen Krzywonski discuss the legal basis for the following alternatives to using CCTV: (1) videotaping the testimony; (2) using a therapy canine to comfort the child while he or she is testifying; (2) allowing the child to take a comfort item to the stand when testifying; (3) having a support person for the child when he or she is testifying; and (4) other special accommodations a prosecutor can make such as modifying the courtroom to make the child more comfortable.
