*This intake process (of sending an appointment letter to identify what to bring to the office conference) documented the Nov. 2001 facts, which facts were reviewed by the DA’s forensic psychologist, which professional opinion was reviewed by the Second District Appellate Court in People vs. Cooper (2/15/2007) 148 CA4th 731, 736, 738. The LA County DA’s prosecution was the first nationally published Elder Abuse case to admit into evidence videotapes by Social Workers of a deceased elder, after the federal Supreme Court’s ruling in Crawford vs. Washington (2004) 541 U.S. 36 that videotapes by police of a deceased person or victim violate the criminal defendant’s 6th Amendment right to confront witnesses. When the victim is deceased, she/he is no longer available to testify. California’s Second District found the social worker tapes of Cooper’s victim, Pat Nelson, to be relevant for the issue of her MENTAL STATE, in explaining who was the victim, and NOT TESTIMONIAL against Mr. Cooper. Hence the Social Worker tapes could be admitted, although the police tapes could not.
