Pearlman v. State, ___ So. 3d ___, 40 Fla. L. Weekly D381 (Fla. 4th DCA February 11, 2015)
The defendant was charged with lewd or lascivious battery on a child between the ages of twelve and sixteen years of age. The trial court precluded the defendant from cross examining the victim about “anatomical terminology critical to the elements of the crimes. [The appellate court found] that this issue was not properly preserved, because [the defendant] never proffered the testimony he sought to elicit from the victim and the substance of that testimony [was] not apparent from the record.”
