Child Abuse and the Confrontation Clause

This week’s episode covers Ohio v. Clark, which asks whether or not a teacher may testify on behalf of a three year old child who was the only witness to a child abuse case under the Confrontation Clause.  This presents a good example of how the law can complicate an objective view of a bad situation, or how a sensitive topic can otherwise deny a citizen’s Constitutional rights.  Either way, Brett and Nazim get real awkward debating the issue somewhere around the 35 minute mark, so get ready for that.
