State v. Purcell, 242 N.C. App. 222 (Jul. 7, 2015)

In this child sexual assault case, no error occurred when the State’s expert medical witness testified that the victim’s delay in reporting anal penetration was a characteristic consistent with the general behavior of children who have been sexually abused in that manner. The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the expert impermissibly opined on the victim’s credibility.
