Vernier v. State

In Vernier v. State, 909 P.2d 1344, 1351 (Wyo. 1996), the defendant was charged with two counts of indecent liberties and one count of second degree sexual assault with a child. One count gave a sixty-day time period within which the offense was alleged to have occurred, and the two other counts provided ninety-day periods. The Court said there that in cases of sexual abuse of a child "the allegation of a general time period in lieu of a specific date is sufficient to give the defendant notice and allow him to adequately prepare a defense."
