Commonwealth v. Kennedy

The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed Defendant’s convictions for indecent assault and battery on a person over fourteen, assault and battery, and indecent exposure. The court held (1) the trial judge did not err in declining to give an instruction on mistake of fact for either the charge of indecent assault and battery or the charge of indecent exposure; (2) the trial judge did not err in allowing what Defendant asserted was unnecessary first complaint evidence; and (3) the trial judge did not abuse his discretion either in asking jurors follow-up questions after attorney-conducted voir dire or in ruling that the jurors were prejudicial.
