State v. Uriarte

In State v. Uriarte, 194 Ariz. 275, 981 P.2d 575 (App. 1998), the Court addressed the right of a parent exercising victims' rights to be present during trial -- not the right to refuse a defense interview. Id. at 276,1, 981 P.2d at 576. And in Uriarte, the child victim did not become an adult during the proceedings. See id. at 277,2, 981 P.2d at 577. It is true that Uriarte held that a parent may exercise victims' rights "in addition to" the victim when it concluded that both a minor and a parent had a right to attend trial. Id. at 278,15-16, 981 P.2d at 578.
