It Must be in the Water.

Professor Yung at Sex Crimes blog has brought attention to a Tennessee decision which would allow expert testimony about an accused's sleepwalking in a child sexual abuse case.  He ponders that, "I always discuss sleepwalking as an example, but students sometimes
doubt it ever really comes up. I never imagined it would be a defense
in a child molestation case."

See State v. Scott.

I thought these cases might also be of interest.

United States v. Harvey, 66 M.J. 585 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. 2008).

United States v. Brady, 2006 CCA LEXIS 177, No. 35937, unpublished op. (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. July 20, 2006).

Sorry, the next two opinions are not available on the Internets.  You need a LEXIS or Westlaw or similar account to get them.

United States v. Blaney, 50 M.J. 533 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. 1999).

United States v. Foster, 1993 CMR LEXIS 122, No. 29283, unpublished op. (A.F.C.M.R. 1993) .  [note military courts changed titles in 1994]
