Criminal Law : Rebuttal Evidence –  Disclosure Of Witness  –  Impeachment

Where a defendant in a robbery case challenged the non-disclosure of a witness for the state, the witness was a rebuttal witness that merely impeached the testimony of the defendant’s girlfriend, so the rebuttal witness was not required to be disclosed, and testimony from a print examiner did not violate the confrontation clause because the testimony was based on her own analysis and findings.

Judgment is affirmed.
