Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, George L. Stigler, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (22 pages)

            Wildor Juste appeals his conviction of sexual abuse in the second degree.  Juste argues the district court erred in (1) admitting testimony alleged to have improperly vouched for the complaining witness, (2) admitting hearsay statements alleged to bolster out-of-court statements made by the complaining witness, (3) submitting a jury instruction naming a date range in which the alleged abuse took place, (4) denying access to department of human services records relied upon by testifying witnesses, and (5) admitting employment records and related testimony over hearsay objections.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm Juste’s conviction.
