Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, Fourth Division
January 27, 2015
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent,
TIMOTHY RYAN ANDERS, Appellant
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF CALLAWAY COUNTY. THE HONORABLE GARY M. OXENHANDLER, JUDGE.
Gabriel E. Harris, Jefferson City, for respondent, for appellant.
Samuel E. Buffaloe, Columbia, MO for appellant, for respondent.
BEFORE DIVISION FOUR: ALOK AHUJA, CHIEF JUDGE, PRESIDING, LISA WHITE HARWICK AND CYNTHIA L. MARTIN, JUDGES.
Timothy Anders appeals from his convictions on two counts of felony child abuse. He contends the circuit court erred in refusing to admit evidence that the victim's mother, who was charged with crimes similar to Anders's, fled the state while her case was pending. Anders argues that evidence of this flight would have aided his defense that the victim's mother committed the abuse on her own. For reasons explained in a Memorandum provided to the parties, we find no error and affirm the convictions.
AFFIRMED. Rule 30.25(b)
