Utah Rules of Evidence 801

(2) Authorizations. The confession of an opponent of the game is excluded from the category of hearsay, since its admissibility in evidence results from the opposing system and not from compliance with the conditions of the hearsay rule. Strahorn, A Reconsider of the Hearsay Rule and Admissions, 85 U.Pa.L.Rev. 484, 564 (1937); Morgan, Basic Problems of Evidence 265 (1962); 4 Wigmore §1048. In case of inclusion, no insurance guarantee is required. The freedom enjoyed by the admission of technical requirements consisting in seeking assurances of reliability in certain circumstances contrary to the interest and restrictive influences of the rule of expert opinion and the rule requiring direct knowledge, considered with the manifestly dominant satisfaction of the results, requires generous treatment of this route of admissibility. The Utah Rules of Evidence govern proceedings in the Utah courts to the extent and with the exceptions set forth in Rule 1101. These rules apply to all actions and proceedings in the courts of Utah, unless otherwise provided. Non-privilege rules do not apply in situations such as: Rule 801 provides some basic definitions of hearsay evidence. Rule 801(d)(1) defines certain statements as non-hearsay. The Senate amendments make two changes.

(C) There is considerable support for the admission of identity documents, although it undoubtedly falls within the category of previous extrajudicial statements. Examples are People v. Gould, 54 Cal.2d 621, 7 Cal.Rptr. 273, 354 pp.2d 865 (1960); Judy v. Staat, 218 B. 168, 146 A.2d 29 (1958); State v. Simmons, 63 Wash.2d 17, 385 p.2d 389 (1963); California Proof Code §1238; New Jersey Evidence Rule 63(1)(c); N.Y. Code of Criminal Procedure §393–b. Other cases can be found in 4 Wigmore §1130. It is based on the generally unsatisfactory and inconclusive nature of the identification in the courtroom compared to those previously made under less suggestive conditions. The Supreme Court considered the admissibility of prior identification evidence in Gilbert v.

California, 388 U.S. 263, 87 S.Ct. 1951, 18 L.Ed.2d 1178 (1967). The exclusion of queue identification was deemed necessary because the defendant did not have the support of defence counsel at the time. Significantly, the court carefully refrained from rendering its decision on the grounds that the witnesses` statements regarding prior extrajudicial identification (« It`s the Man ») violated either the hearsay rule or the right to confrontation because they were not made under oath and in immediate cross-examination in the presence of the Trier. Instead, the court found that current federal law, with the exception of the Second Circuit, only permits the use of a witness` prior contradictory testimony for impeachment proceedings. Rule 801(d)(1), as proposed by the Court, would have allowed all such statements to be admissible as substantial evidence, an approach adopted by a small but growing number of courts, the most recent being California v. Green, 399 U.S. 149 (1970). While some support was expressed for the court rule, which was largely based on the need to counter the effects of witness intimidation in criminal cases, the Committee decided to adopt a compromise version of the rule similar to the position of the Second Circle.

The rule, as amended, distinguishes between previous types of contradictory statements (with the exception of statements identifying a person that they believe were made and which are currently admissible, see United States v. Anderson, 406 F.2d 719, 720 (4th Cir.), cert. denied, 395 U.S. 967 (1969)) and permits only those made while the declarant was cross-examined in a trial. a hearing or testimony. to be admissible for their truth. See United States v. DeSisto, 329 F.2d 929 (2nd Cir.), cert. denied, 377 U.S. 979 (1964); United States v. Cunningham, 446 F.2d 194 (2nd Cir. 1971) (Limitation of admissibility of prior contradictory statements as physical evidence to evidence made under oath in formal proceedings, but need not have been cross-examination).

The Committee`s decision is based on the fact that: (1) unlike most other situations involving affidavits or oral statements, it cannot be disputed that the prior statement was made; and (2) the context of the formal proceedings, the oath and the possibility of cross-examination provide additional assurance as to the reliability of the prior statement. Rule 801 defines hearsay and what is not, in order to admit the prior explanation as physical evidence. A prior statement by a witness at a trial or hearing incompatible with his or her testimony is, of course, always permissible to cast doubt on the credibility of the witness. The position taken by the Advisory Committee in formulating this part of the article is based on the refusal to approve the general use of previously prepared statements as substantial evidence, while recognizing that particular circumstances require a contrary result. Judgment is more a judgment of experience than of logic. In any event, the rule requires, as a general guarantee, that the declarant actually testifies as a witness, and then lists three situations in which testimony is excluded from the hearsay category. Compare Uniform Rule 63(1), which allows for any out-of-court statement by a declarant present at trial and available for cross-examination. Article 609 Impeachment by evidence of a criminal conviction. There is little doubt that a statement made in terms is intended by the applicant as an allegation.
