State v. Ragland, 226 N.C. App. 547 (Apr. 16, 2013)

In a child sex case, the trial court did not err by allowing the State’s properly qualified medical expert to testify that the victim’s profile was consistent with that of a sexually abused child. The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the State failed to lay a proper foundation for the testimony, concluding that because the witness was properly qualified to testify as an expert regarding the characteristics of sexually abused children, a proper foundation was laid.
