Criminal Practice – Constitutional – Confrontation Clause – Comments to Social Worker – Not Testimonial (access required)

U.S. v. DeLeon Statements made by defendant’s eight-year-old stepson to a social worker about defendant’s abuse were nontestimonial, and admission of the statements did not violate defendant’s Confrontation Clause rights under Crawford v. Washington; the 4th Circuit upholds defendant’s convictions of second-degree murder and assault in the death of his stepson.
