Seth L. Goldstein, Esq.

Founder and Executive Director:
The Child Abuse Forensic Institute (CAFI)
Author of The Sexual Exploitation of Children

Seth is one of today's leading law enforcement experts on crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children. His career started as a municipal police officer and developed into a prosecutor's investigator. Since the mid-70's, he has helped expose the extent of child sexual abuse in the U.S., investigated and been involved in the prosecution of child molesters, and written the leading child sexual abuse investigation textbook, The SexualExploitation of Children.
Among his long list of accomplishments, Seth helped to create the child sexual abuse investigative practices that are now the standard for investigators across the country; he met with President Ronald Reagan in April, 1985, to discuss the issue of missing and exploited children; he was a founding member of the Board of Directors of the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children; and he founded the Child Abuse Forensic Institute in 1992 where he serves as Executive Director. This nonprofit organization's primary goal is to create competent, credible, and court admissible evidence in child abuse cases, especially cases that are difficult to prosecute. In 1989, Seth turned to the law profession to provide better advocacy for children's personal safety.
