State v. Streater, 197 N.C. App. 632 (Jul. 7, 2009)

The state’s expert pediatrician was improperly allowed to testify that his findings were consistent with a history of anal penetration received from the child victim where no physical evidence supported the diagnosis. The expert was properly allowed to testify that victim’s history of vaginal penetration was consistent with his findings, which included physical evidence supporting a diagnosis of sexual intercourse. The expert’s testimony that his findings were consistent with the victim’s allegations that the defendant perpetrated the abuse was improper where there was no foundation for the testimony that the defendant was the one who committed the acts.
