Evidence

A telling of an event that can be used in court. This can be in writing (written evidence) or out loud (oral evidence) or in pictures or videos.

Evidence is information a person knows or something they have found that is used in a court case.

Evidence can be written down in a witness statement or video recorded in an ABE (Achieving Best evidence) interview. Only certain types of evidence are admissible in criminal cases.

 

Giving evidence is when a witness or defendant goes into the witness box and tells their story (examination in chief) and then is asked questions that may disagree with what they have said (cross examination).
