Legal experts say Kobe Bryant's lawyers would have a tough time presenting evidence that his accuser had mental problems months before her encounter with him in Colorado.
Loyola University Law Professor Laurie Levenson says any such
evidence would only be useful if it indicates an ongoing problem.
And Florida attorney Roy Black says the law is clear on one
thing -- the woman's prior sexual history.
He says that's off limits as evidence unless the woman
previously had sex with Bryant.
The N-B-A star is charged with felony sexual assault on a
19-year-old hotel employee. He's scheduled to appear in an Eagle
County courtroom August Sixth.
