Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Kim Helper, District Attorney General; and Jennifer Mason, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant, Douglas Curtis, was convicted of four counts of rape of a child, a Class A felony. On appeal, he contends that the evidence is insufficient to support his convictions and that a portion of the victim's testimony violated his right to a fair trial. Following our review, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
