Czech v. State of Delaware, 269, 2007

Conviction for rape offenses is affirmed over claims that: 1) the trial judge abused its discretion by allowing the child complainant's mother to sit on the witness stand behind the child while the child testified before the jury; 2) the trial judge committed plain error by allowing evidence of a similar uncharged offense to be introduced into evidence; and 3) the prosecutor's statements during closing arguments amounted to improper vouching.
