Walton v. Ireland

Justia Opinion SummaryAfter a hearing, the district court issued a protection from abuse order against Father, finding that he had sexually abused his five-year-old daughter, ordering that he have no contact with her, and temporarily awarding sole parental rights and responsibilities to Mother. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the district court did not abuse its discretion by admitting evidence of statements that the victim made to a social worker during therapy identifying Father as her abuser; (2) the court did not abuse its discretion by excluding evidence of statements the victim made during a forensic interview; and (3) the evidence was sufficient to support the court's finding of abuse.
