Tuesday’s argument at NMCCA is in United States v. Sparks, No. 201000275. Here’s the assignment of error:
The military judge abused his discretion when he allowed into evidence hearsay accusations allegedly communicated by Appellant’s four-year-old daughter to her estranged, maternal grandmother. Contrary to the military judge’s ruling in limine and at trial, admission of the child’s supposed statement did not satisfy the requirements of Military Rule of Evidence 807. The error was prejudicial.
