So judge Melville is going to allow an expert on child abuse. Just in case you've never had the pleasure of reading or hearing such testimony, hold on tight, it's scary stuff. Much like Rape Trauma Syndrome, Child Sex Abuse Accommodation Syndrome can be found in any case in which an allegation has been made. As it turns out, everything is 'consistent' with CSAAS delayed reporting--no problem, prompt reporting, no sweat. Prosecutors love this stuff--it can make even the biggest dog of a case sit up and bark--credibility problems with your CW? Hey, just bring in an "expert" to legitimize the dubious testimony.
