CROWNS STILL USE JUNK SCIENCE TO OBTAIN WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS

After many years we’re still fighting the Crown’s extremely prejudicial attempts to introduce junk science into evidence to obtain convictions of sexual assault.  In this case the Crown used a purported expert “child psychologist to testify about the effect of delayed, incremental and inconsistent disclosure by child victims of trauma including child abuse and a correlation between child sexual abuse and non-epileptic seizures and post traumatic stress disorder.”  Fortunately our Court of Appeal can’t be as easily tricked by this nonsense as the convicting trial Judge was.
