            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Monica Zrinyi Wittig, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Mullins, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (12 pages)

            Jeffrey Juergens appeals his convictions of lascivious acts with a child by solicitation and indecent exposure.  He argues the district court erred by admitting hearsay evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: The child protective center video was properly admitted under the residual exception to the hearsay rule.  The parents’ testimony of the child’s out-of-court statements was cumulative of other admitted testimony.  And a pediatrician’s testimony to the child’s out-of-court statements was properly admitted under the medical-treatment rule.
