Division of Youth and Family Services v. S.M.

Complaint alleging sexual abuse allegations against defendant dismissed following a trial at which state’s expert witness was thoroughly discredited and all scientific evidence concerning the defendant’s sexual interests successfully suppressed. Dismissal affirmed by the New Jersey Appellate Division upon a finding that state’s expert testimony was revealed during cross-examination to be based on factual inaccuracies. Defendant’s young children were not removed and put into foster care.
