11:30 a.m. 35A02-1308-CR-696. St. Joseph High School, South Bend. A jury found Speed guilty of Class A felony child molesting, Class C felony child molesting, and Class B felony sexual misconduct with a minor. Speed was acquitted of the Class D felony sexual misconduct with a minor charge.
On appeal, Speed argues that the trial court improperly allowed J.A.T.’s counselor to vouch for her credibility. He also claims that the trial court erroneously allowed the prosecutor to ask leading questions of J.A.T., who was 20 at the time of the trial, and allowed a line of questioning that implied that other acts occurred outside of Huntington County.
Speed also asserts that there is insufficient evidence to support his convictions because there is no evidence to corroborate J.A.T.’s testimony and her testimony is not credible. Finally, Speed claims his attorneys’ failure to object to certain evidence and to rebut other evidence resulted in ineffective assistance of counsel.
