I don't know what you mean by a "taint" hearing. If you are asking if there is a separate hearing to determine whether someone coached a child, the answer is sometimes as a motion to dismiss or a motion in limine before a trial.

In accordance with the Avvo community guidelines, this communication does not constitute "legal advice", nor does it form an attorney-client relationship. You should seek counsel in your geographic area regarding any specific questions.

Yes that is what I meant by a taint hearing.

I agree with the above answer. I would add such a hearing is statutory when the State tries to introduce a video tape of the child's interview with law enforcement.

Good luck!
