State v. King, 235 N.C. App. 187 (Jul. 15, 2014)

In this child sex abuse case, the trial court did not err by allowing the State’s expert in pediatric medicine and the evaluation and treatment of sexual abuse to testify about common characteristics she observed in sexually abused children and a possible basis for those characteristics. The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the expert’s testimony constituted opinion testimony on the victim’s credibility.
