Existing law provides that certain statements by a child describing an act of sexual contact performed on the child that are otherwise not admissible in court may be admissible in dependency cases that are brought by the State Department of Human Resources acting through a local department of human resources
This bill would remove the requirement that in order for statements of this nature to be admissible, the dependency case must have been brought by the Department of Human Resources
To amend Section 12-15-310, Code of Alabama 1975, to provide further for admissibility in dependency cases of certain statements made by a child regarding sexual contact.
