Criminal Practice – Evidence – Witness Impeachment – 1987 Manslaughter Convictions – Harmless Error – CSC with a Minor (access required)

State v. Black The trial court erred when it admitted evidence of a defense witness’s 1987 manslaughter convictions for which he was imprisoned until 1993. These convictions did not rest on dishonest conduct and are not particularly probative of the specific trait of truthfulness. Nevertheless, the error was harmless.
