Building an Elder Justice Unit in South Dakota

In response to the increase in cases, Elder Justice Units are being developed in state and local prosecution offices. Presenters Michael Sharp, Assistant Attorney General in South Dakota, and Dave Lunzman, Special Assistant Attorney General in South Dakota, will describe the journey to create an Elder Justice Unit in South Dakota, finding support in the adage “If you build it, they will come.” AAG Sharp will also discuss two recent (closed) cases and how their Elder Justice Unit aided in those prosecutions.
