Indiana Court Limits Use of Videotaped Statements in Child Molesting Cases
The Indiana Court of Appeals has reversed a Tippecanoe County, Indiana man’s conviction for child molesting, because the trial court improperly admitted a forensic video statement of the alleged victim.

The interview is commonly conducted by an investigator from the prosecutor’s office, and is designed to elicit evidence to use in a child molesting prosecution.
