United States v. Ledee, No. 13-2363 (2d Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed his conviction for crimes stemming from participating via webcam in the sexual abuse of an eight-year-old girl by her mother. The court concluded that the closure of the courtroom during the victim's testimony to all persons who were not directly involved in the trial did not violate defendant's Sixth Amendment right to a public trial. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
