Delaware v. Calvin Lee Huss



Type of Case:


Location (State or Country): 


Civil or Criminal: 

Confession, Other victims

Form of Corroboration: 


Delaware v. Calvin Lee Huss was a 2010 case in which Huss pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl over a seven-month period in 1993. The victim, now in her 30s, contacted police after a repressed memory of the abuse arose in therapy. Huss' confession is corroborative of the vicitm's account; additionally, he confessed to sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl between 2008 and 2010. This case is significant for the nature of the victim's recovered memory, showing that claims about a lack of corroboration being standard for memories recovered in therapy are not generalizable.
