State v. DeLawder
Maryland Court of Special Appeals
344 A.2d 446 (1975)
Lee Franklin DeLawder (defendant) was found guilty of having sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 14 years. At trial, the judge refused to allow DeLawder’s counsel to introduce evidence which would have shown that the alleged victim thought she was pregnant after having sexual relations with other men; that she was afraid of telling her mother that she was voluntarily having sex; and that she fabricated the story that DeLawder sexually assaulted her. Thereafter, DeLawder sought post-conviction relief, arguing that his Sixth Amendment rights to the federal Constitution had been violated.
