Everyday Evidence: A Practical Approach – Impeachment
FRE 611 addresses witnesses and establishes the manner and scope of witness testimony during cross examination. While FRE 611 governs the form of cross examination questions, many other evidentiary rules also impact your ability to impeach witnesses. Prosecutors must understand the legal doctrine behind the rules governing impeachment. This presentation will show attendees how to begin their inquiry by developing a deeper basis of knowledge concerning prior untruthful acts under FRE 608(b), prior convictions under FRE 609, and prior inconsistent statements under FRE 613.
