Rule 803(4) Evidence
In State v. Thompson, 169 Ariz. 471, 820 P.2d 335 (App. 1991), a social worker had interviewed a child victim on videotape. Id. at 475, 820 P.2d at 339.
In holding the tape inadmissible under Rule 803(4), the Court noted that neither the child's physician nor counselor had relied on the tape in treating the child. Id. at 475-76, 820 P.2d at 339-40.
But we only emphasized those points after stating that the interview was not relevant to treatment by the social worker herself. Id. at 475, 820 P.2d at 339.
Thus, the problem in Thompson was that the statements were not relevant to diagnosis or treatment by any of the parties involved in treating the child.
