Part I of this Comment evaluates the new hearsay exception as a rule of evidence. It concludes that the exception is an appropriate solution to the special hearsay problems that arise in child sexual abuse cases. Part II considers whether the exception violates the accused's constitutional right to confront the witnesses against him or her. It concludes that the exception is not unconstitutional per se, although specific applications of the exception may be unconstitutional.
