Practice and Procedure

R V STEVEN (1998)

PUBLISHED April 8, 1998

The truthfulness of allegations that the defendant's wife had forced the victim to dress up and pose for indecent photographs was not relevant to the question of whether or not the defendant was guilty of indecency with a child and indecent assault. Therefore, the defendant could not contradict answers given by the victim about the allegation in cross-examination.
