TDCAA TDCAA Community Criminal Using BOTH Closed circuit and offering recorded statement of child in sexual abuse case
I�m thinking (after a hearing to establish that the child is unable to testify in the presence of the defendant) of offering both the recording of the child�s statement (under 38.071 Section 5) as well as question the child via closed circuit (under 38.071 section 3). Although I haven�t seen this done before, I see nothing in the section that limits me to one or the other. Section 13 seems to require a choice between 2 and 5, but says nothing about not allowing 5 in conjunction with 3. Has anyone ever done this before? If so, could I contact you to discuss your experience? Thanks for your help in advance.
