Right to Confront Dildos


— March 11, 2008

From Above The Law comes the Florida case in which the defendant Tyrrell:

[F]irst argues that his “right to due process and right to confront witnesses” was violated because the state did not produce the [sex toys] that were the subject of the July 23 and August 2 orders….

Tyrrell contends that the trial court erred in failing to let him show the victim a dildo lineup.

As David Lat at AboveTheLaw.com put it:

If that doesn’t violate the Sixth Amendment’s Confrontation Clause, which guarantees a criminal defendant the right “to be confronted with the [dildos] against him,” we don’t know what does.
