NMCCA opinion

NMCCA has decided United States v. Oglesby.

The issue was prosecution sentencing evidence of other acts toward the victim which had not been charged.  Appellant alleged that the military judge failed to conduct a proper 1001 and Mil. R. Evid. 403 balancing test.  NMCCA disagreed.

NMCCA found that the military judge properly evaluated the evidence as to its admissibility, including a 403 balancing.  The court further found that the military judge correctly gave a limiting instruction to the members on how they could use the additional evidence.
