My name is Theresa Jordan. I am the cousin of Rebecca McEvoy who died at age 11 while awaiting trial in Mobile,Al.
I believe the same problem about the constitution is what is standing in our way. I have contacted my Senators and Federal Congressman as well regarding her case. The law “Crawford Vs’ Washington”enforces the 6th amendment right to cross examine and due to her death she cannot be examined.Also, her case was delayed twice while she was alive and for two years they put her case off. Rebecca went through the whole process of med. exams, counseling,police statements and etc. and Crawford says only outcry testimony can be used in her case.
The courts have thrown out her police statements and DHR counseling statements already! There is not much more evidence left to speak for her. Do you know if Crawford is in fact a translation of the Constitution? If so, then yes our constitution needs changes for victim’s like Becca. We have ask for Becca to have a law in her honor.
