George Tyson represented a defendant charged with the sexual abuse of his stepdaughter. The outcry occurred a number of years after the defendant had left the household and had remarried. The victim did not make the outcry until after her mother wanted to take her to a doctor to determine if she had been sexually active due to some unrelated incidents.
