In a sexual assault case, how have the courts dealt with claims that the trial court abused its discretion in excluding evidence of the victim's other sexual conduct?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Ornelas, F074019 (Cal. App. 2018):

12. Because the trial court did not abuse its discretion, we likewise reject appellant's claim that the trial court's ruling deprived him of his right to confront witnesses or his right to present a defense. (See People v. Fontana, supra, 49 Cal.4th at p. 370 [rejecting constitutional claims because trial court did not abuse its discretion in excluding evidence of victim's other sexual conduct].)
