Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Montgomery County, Amy Zacharias, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ. Opinion by May, J. (7 pages)
J.T. appeals his delinquency adjudication for an act constituting third-degree sexual abuse. He argues (1) his constitutional rights were violated when he and the public were excluded from the hearing during the alleged victim’s testimony and (2) there was insufficient evidence to support the delinquency finding. OPINION HOLDS: We find error was not preserved on the exclusion claim. And we find sufficient evidence supports the adjudication.
