A148767

In a case where the defendant was charged with felony child abuse (Pen. Code, § 279a, subd. (a)), the trial court erred when it allowed the defendant’s adult daughter to testify about three incidents during her own childhood in which she claimed defendant had abused her too, the details of which she only vaguely recalled, and all of which were considerably different than the charged offense. None of these incidents had much, if any, probative value and yet all three were prejudicial. Therefore, the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment.
