A-18-1158, In re Interest of Angel C.  

Douglas County, Separate Juvenile Court Judge Christopher E. Kelly

Attorney for Appellant: Thomas C. Riley, Noelle Obermeyer (Douglas County Public Defender’s Office) 

Attorney for Appellee:  Donald W. Kleine, Anthony M. Hernandez (Douglas County Attorney’s Office) and Katherine G. Corwin (Senior Certified Law Clerk)

Juvenile Action:  Adjudication

Action Taken by Trial Court:  Following a hearing, the juvenile court found that Angel C. was a child within the meaning of Neb. Rev. Stat. § 43-247(3)(a) (Reissue 2016) after determining that the father had subjected a child in the household to inappropriate sexual contact and situations and that Angel was at a risk for harm in his father’s care.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: The father contends that the juvenile court erred in: (1) excluding evidence of the contents of the victim’s cell phone and social media use on the basis that the evidence was barred by the rape shield law; (2) finding that there was sufficient evidence to adjudicate Angel; (3) refusing to allow the father to question the victim regarding sexual assault accusations the victim made against her brother; and (4) denying his request for a continuance to produce necessary witnesses who failed to appear despite being subject to subpoenas.
