State v. Horton, 200 N.C. App. 74 (Sept. 15, 2009)

In a child sexual assault case, prior statements of the victim made to an expert witness regarding “grooming” techniques employed by the defendant were properly admitted to corroborate the victim’s trial testimony. Although the prior statements provided new or additional information, they tended to strengthen the child’s testimony that she had been sexually abused by the defendant.
