The appellate court ruled Wednesday that the victim at the center of the Curt Johnson child sex assault case will not testify at Johnson’s criminal trial. In a decision handed down Wednesday by the Second Court of Appeals, the victim at the center of the Curt Johnson child sex assault case will not be allowed to testify.
The ruling upholds Racine County Circuit Court Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz’s decision of an in camera review of the victim’s records, but reverses his decision that the victim could still testify despite her decision to withhold her medical records for privacy reasons.
Johnson faces a single felony count of repeated sexual assault of the same child. His trial is scheduled to begin on April 23, 2012.
