Gagne then presented testimony from several witnesses, including his adopted cousin, Gagne's father, friends of Gagne, and a Biddeford police officer who testified that no call came in related to an earlier near-arrest of Gagne that the victim claimed happened before he assaulted her.[¶18] Gagne's adopted cousin testified that Gagne had consensual sex with both the victim and her together on November 4 and that she had not overheard any altercation before or after that. We have similarly held that the Confrontation Clause was not offended by the admission of grand jury testimony from a defendant's mother, who testified that she did not remember the grand jury proceedings, because the defendant had “the opportunity to examine and cross-examine his mother before the jury regarding what she did and did not recall and the reasons for her failure of recollection.” Gorman, 2004 ME 90, ¶¶ 15, 55, 854 A.2d 1164. We do not find these arguments persuasive and do not discuss them further.2. §§ 207-A(1)(A) (domestic violence assault), 208(1)(C) (aggravated assault), 210-B(1)(A) (domestic violence terrorizing), 253(1)(A) (gross sexual assault) (2016).3. § 207-A(1)(A) (2016), and one count of domestic violence terrorizing (Class D), 17-A M.

They began dating, and soon the victim moved in with Gagne at a Saco home occupied by Gagne, Gagne's parents, and, for part of the time, Gagne's younger, adopted cousin.Speak out against domestic and sexual violence whenever the opportunity arises in your personal interactions with others.Offer non-judgmental support to those who are affected by domestic and/or sexual violence.
