Vouching testimony

On appeal from his conviction of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct, defendant argued that the trial court's admission of an audiotape of an investigating police officer's interview interrogation of defendant contained vouching statements about the victim's credibility that implicated his right to a fair trial and therefore was reversible error.  Nothing that, in the audio, an officer made three passing comments in an attempt to persuade defendant to be forthcoming during the interrogation, and the context of those statements in the audiotape interview was made clear to the jury, the Minnesota Court of Appeals found no error.  Affirmed.

Lynne Torgerson, Esq. was not attorney of record in this case.
