State v. R.Y.

R.Y. was convicted of sexual offenses against two young girls. On appeal, R.Y. contended that the trial court impermissibly excluded one victim’s statement to a caseworker that it was the defendant’s step-son who touched her. The NJ Supreme Court agreed, reversed the conviction as to one of the victims, and remanded that case for a new trial. The Court affirmed R.Y.’s conviction for illegal conduct against the other victim.
