PT110 Prosecuting the Dark Web

This course was funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance

This course introduces prosecutors to the challenges they may face in prosecuting cases involving the dark web. It is designed around a case study that moves through the entire prosecutorial process, from charging decisions through sentencing. Topics include how the dark web works, an introduction to Tor and other popular darknets, and an overview of key terms related to investigations in the dark web. The course provides a framework for the prosecution of a case involving the dark web, including a specific timeline showing what steps to take and when. Relevant, up-to-date case law is included to assist in future prosecutorial efforts.
