  • Zarella, J.
When evidence is proffered under one of the exceptions to Connecticut's rape shield statute, Connecticut General Statutes §54-86f, to support an alternative theory concerning the source of the victim's injuries, it will almost always be deemed more probative than prejudicial because it implicates the defendant's constitutional right of confrontation.
