HB 293 Evidence; procedure relating to child’s testimony of sexual contact or physical abuse; provide effective date

Voted on Monday February 27, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation corrects an error in a bill of ours from 2013 that set the evidentiary standard for admission of child hearsay as "the time of trial" rather than "time of offense".
