US v. Carey, No. 08-60961

By FindLaw Staff on November 25, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's aggravated sexual abuse of a minor conviction and sentence are affirmed where: 1) the admissibility of testimony accompanied by a Fed. R. Evid. 612 refreshment did not depend upon the source of the writing, the identity of the writing's author, or the truth of the writing's contents; 2) a victim-witness's youth and nervousness could satisfy Rule 611's necessity requirement; and 3) defendant's sentence was not procedurally unreasonable because the district court examined the 18 U.S.C. section 3553 factors.
