Pennsylvania Legislation On Expert Witnesses

Pennsylvania House Bill 1264 will allow expert witnesses to testify in sexual assault cases and is now before Governor Thomas W. Corbett.  The Sandusky trial brought to light that Pennsylvania is the only state to prohibit such testimony.  The legislation is expected to aid juries in understanding the many factors involved in assault victims coming forward.
