California, United States of America
The following excerpt is from People v. Linares, E068808 (Cal. App. 2019):
Having no right to present the evidence, defendant has not established a violation of his right to a fair trial, either. The "'routine application of state evidentiary law does not implicate [a] defendant's constitutional rights.'" (People v. Hovarter (2008) 44 Cal.4th 983, 1010, quoting People v. Brown (2003) 31 Cal.4th 518, 545.)
The court did not abuse its discretion in excluding the self-serving hearsay.
