Gov. Bevin Signs SB 137

Jun 12, 2018

The 19 CAC's in Kentucky rejoiced with the passage of SB 137, a change to the rules of evidence to allow a child's disclosure to be admitted into court under certain circumstances.  This change to the heresay rule is a huge victory to those children who would be considered incompetent to testify in court by their chronological or mental age.  This means when a 3 year old tells a parent of abuse, the parent can testify to what the child said.  Also included will be disclosures to our Forensic Interviewers!  One more path to getting justice for our kids!
