United States v. Haas

In a trial for sex trafficking of a minor and receipt of child pornography, the government won’t be permitted to introduce “other acts” evidence of child molestation by the defendant. That evidence is not similar enough to the charged crimes to overcome its prejudicial effect, and other evidence will tend to show intent.

United States v. Haas, No. 3:16cr139, Sept. 13, 2018. EDVA at Richmond (Payne).
