Robin Sax is a Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney who specializes in prosecuting sex crimes against children. Along with Stacy Dittrich and Susan Murphy-Milano, Robin hosts The Justice Interruprted Crime Investigation Network (www.blogtalkradio.com/justiceinterrupted) where each week they seek to provide justice for those whose lives have been interrupted by rape, murder, child sexual predators, strange and unexplained disappearances, domestic violence, and cold cases yet to be solved. For over fifteen years, she has prosecuted some of the most despicable defendants who have committed the most heinous crimes. For the last seven years, she has been the prosecuting attorney for the Child Sexual Assault division of the Los Angeles County Sex Crimes Unit. In that capacity, Robin works with a multi-disciplinary team at UCLA's Rape Treatment Center/The Stuart House, along with law enforcement, victims’ advocates, social workers, and members of the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services. She conducts forensic interviews of child victims of sexual abuse, structures investigation plans to maximize the chances of successfully prosecuting their abusers, and handles all aspects of subsequent prosecutions. Robin has spent over twenty years in the classroom working with children ages five to fifteen. In her program "You Be the Judge," Robin poses hypothetical ethical dilemmas for children to discuss, ponder, argue, and resolve. Robin also coaches junior and senior high school mock trial teams for the Constitutional Rights Foundation and mentors high school students who want to learn more about life as prosecutor. Robin has also written four books that draw upon her vast experience as a sex-crimes prosecutor, child advocate, and parenting expert: The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Criminal Justice System; Predators and Child Molesters: What Every Parent Needs to Know to Keep Kids Safe; It Happens Every Day: Inside the World of a Sex Crimes D.A.; Everything I Know About Parenting I Learned in Court: A DA's Guide to Disciplining Children. She is a regular blogger on Women in Crime Ink (www.robinsax.com/womenincrime.html), a blog about crime and media issues from women criminal justice professionals and authors. And in her spare time, Robin writes the weekly blog SaxFacts (www.robinsax.com/saxfactsweekly.html), which provides thousands of readers with invaluable resources for everything from scouting for a nanny to getting a trust notarized at 3 a.m.

Stacy Dittrich is an award winning 15-year law enforcement officer and former detective specializing in sex crimes. With past training by former FBI Behavioral Specialist, and bestselling author, Roy Hazelwood, Stacy is certified through the National Institute of Truth Verification as an examiner (CVSA- lie detector). Stacy has also been assigned to a federal drug task force that resulted in arrests from California to Mexico and has been involved in the investigations of numerous homicides. In 2002, Stacy received the Victim’s of Crime Award from former Ohio Attorney General, Jim Petro. A certified law enforcement instructor, Stacy is also a media consultant in the area of law enforcement.  Prior to her law enforcement career, Stacy explored a brief modeling career in New York, where she appeared in Allure Magazine. Stacy is the author of the upcoming CeeCee Gallagher thriller series about a female detective. Stacy, and her novel, The Devil’s Closet, about a serial child killer inspired by a case she investigated, were recently featured on CNN’s Nancy Grace. The first novel debuts October 2008, and the second follows in June 2009.

Susan Murphy-Milano has been a tireless advocate for battered women and children. In January of 1989, Susan's father, a Chicago Violent Crimes Detective, murdered her mother and then took his own life. That very night, after discovering their bodies, she vowed to change the way society viewed domestic violence and broken relationships. In 1993, she was instrumental in the passage of the Illinois stalking law and has constantly argued for the rights of battered women and children, both through legislation and through national television appearances and print media. Susan's quest for justice has been trumpeted across the pages of newspapers, magazines, radio and television, including: The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Radio, ABC's 20/20, CBS 48 Hours, Nightline, CNN, Sunday Today Show Profile, Women's Day, Family Circle Magazine, U.S. News and World Report to name only a few. Susan created Project: Project, a non-profit national organization dedicated to meet the individual needs of both women and children during the time of crisis in trying to leave an abusive relationship. In addition, she battled the bureaucratic resistance and legal nightmares that often plagued women married to someone in law enforcement and successfully orchestrated the passage of the Lauternberg Act, in 1998. In 1996, Doubleday published her first celebrated book, Defending Our Lives, providing a compassionate and comprehensive guide to the options and help available to battered women and their families in their desperate need for getting away from domestic violence and staying safe. Through her continued experiences in helping others, she has developed the tools and techniques to deal with the many confusing situations and problems surrounding relationship break-up or divorce. She now has thoughtfully compiled this information into her new book, Moving out, Moving on.
