Publisher Description

Opinion by JUDGE VAN CISE Defendant, Raymond Richard Oldsen, was convicted by a jury in April 1982 of second degree sexual assault, sexual assault on a child, aggravated incest, and child abuse allegedly perpetrated by him on his five-year-old daughter. Over defendant's objections, the trial court allowed a physician, a school psychologist, a clinical social worker, and an investigator for the district attorney to testify to oral or demonstrative statements made to each by the child in which she described the indecent liberties taken with her and said that her ""daddy"" had done them. Contending that the court erred in admitting these statements, defendant appeals. We affirm. Defendant contends that W.C.L. v. People, 685 P.2d 176 (Colo. No. 82SC243, July, 9, 1984) is dispositive. We do not agree. In W.C.L., a case involving a three-year-old girl sexually assaulted by her sixteen-year-old uncle, out-of-court statements by the victim to her aunt and to a pediatrician were held inadmissible because Colorado had not adopted Fed. R. Evid. 803(24). Omitted from the opinion was any ruling on whether the statements to the doctor were admissible under the medical exception to the hearsay rule, CRE 803(4). See w.c.l/., footnote 8.
