          State v. Bessette

          Superior Court of Montana
          Missoula, Montana

 

     Defendant Bessette was charged with the sexual

exploitation of a three year old child.  The prosecution's expert

psychologist provided testimony based on her videotaped

evaluation of the child.  The defense called Dr. Charles Robinson

who offered testimony demonstrating that the interview

process itself was responsible for the report (inaccurate) of the

sexual abuse.  The jury found the Defendant not guilty.

suffer from hyperactivity.  The prosecution offered expert

psychological testimony to validate the report of sexual abuse.

The defense retained Dr. Charles Robinson to examine the

reported victim and provide testimony to the jury.  The

Defendant was found not guilty by the jury.
