OZARK, MO – Christian County Prosecuting Attorney, Amy J. Fite announces that Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Anna L. Bunch has just completed training at the National Computer Forensics Institute (NCFI) in Hoover, Alabama. The NCFI is a partnership between the United States Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, and the Alabama District Attorney’s Association to train state and local law enforcement, judges and prosecutors in computer forensics and digital evidence. She was one of 24 other prosecutors that came from all over the United States.
The five-day course provides hands-on experience to allow prosecutors to obtain knowledge and insight into handling criminal cases with digital evidence. The training teaches prosecutors how the computer forensics process is completed by investigators and how to better evaluate and present computer crimes cases.
The in-court exercises dealt with a fictional case that involved fraudulent computer access, identity theft, and forging of documents, which will provide helpful guidance to her in handling her caseload of property and financial crimes.
