Whether the four audio clips were properly admitted into evidence?
Defendant was convicted of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct. He appealed. On appeal, defendant argued that the trial court erred in concluding that the State had provided sufficient foundation to admit into evidence four audio clips from a recorded telephone call. Noting that the victim testified about the authenticity and correctness of the recordings, and that he voice and defendant’s were on the recordings, and that the recordings depicted what occurred in the hotel room, the Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the recordings were properly admitted.
State v. Cartharn, A20-0922, Hennepin County.
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
