Stephen A. Miller and Kathryn A. Young : The Legal Intelligencer : March 12, 2015
Child abuse cases are notoriously difficult to prosecute, in large part because there are often few witnesses to the alleged abuse, and those witnesses are often very young. The question whether those young witnesses must testify about their abuse in court, therefore, has great practical and constitutional importance. The U.S. Supreme Court already held in 1990 that child abuse victims, under certain circumstances, can testify via closed-circuit television (and therefore not directly face their alleged abusers). The question before the court this term in , No. 13-1352, is whether those victims need to testify at all.
