Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Muscatine County, Stuart P. Werling, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (12 pages)

            Rosalio Quiroz appeals his conviction for second-degree sexual abuse.  He contends the district court erred and abused its discretion in admitting hearsay and vouching evidence and substantial evidence does not support the verdict.  OPINION HOLDS: We find substantial evidence supports the jury’s verdict.  And we find no merit in any of Quiroz’s hearsay challenges.  Finally, we find the forensic interviewer did not offer bolstering or vouching testimony, so the district court did not abuse its discretion by allowing it.  We affirm Quiroz’s conviction for second-degree sexual abuse.
