Criminal Practice – Evidence – Forensic Interviewing Expert – Victim’s Credibility (access required)

State v. McKerley There is no way to interpret the extensive testimony by a forensic interviewing expert other than to mean she believed the victim was being truthful. Such testimony was patently inadmissible. Considered in the context of the other evidence of defendant’s guilt, we cannot say the erroneous admission of the expert’s testimony did not contribute to the jury’s decision to find defendant guilty of criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree and lewd act upon a child under 16.
