Abstract

This comment discusses an accused's rights under the Illinois Confrontation Clause and the need to protect child sexual abuse victims from the emotional trauma associated with testifying in the presence of their abuser at trial. The author contends that the use of closed circuit television is a valuable means of protecting children from such trauma without unduly infringing upon an accused's right of confrontation.
