US v. Espinosa, No. 08-3354

By FindLaw Staff on September 18, 2009 3:27 PM

Defendant's aggravated sexual abuse conviction is affirmed as to one count where: 1) the evidence was sufficient to establish the penetration element; and 2) the jury could have disregarded a prosecution expert's testimony and nonetheless found that the victim had been abused. However, defendant's conviction on another count is reversed where insufficient evidence existed as to the victim's age at the time of the offense conduct.
