What constitutes further communication with police? o Oregon v. For instance, in order to show that using the criminal law to enforce strict speed limits on the roads is fully consistent with the second version of the Harm Principle, we would need to show that every driver who exceeds the speed limit thereby creates an unreasonably increased risk of harm—which seems implausible. The purpose of these warnings is to protect the accused’s rights against self incrimination.

First, the appellate court found that precluding the defendant from testifying about a statement allegedly made to him by his mother the day the decedent was killed—concerning how she purportedly killed the decedent—was error. Acknowledging that there was nothing wrong in theory with the proposition that there is in fact a 3rd (or intermediate) standard of proof, Phang J noted that the SGCA’s acknowledgment in Tang Yoke Kheng itself that the court would normally require more evidence and not just merely that little bit more evidence such as to tilt the balance was recognition, implicit or otherwise, of a 3rd standard of proof.

No plaintiff in any action for breach of promise of marriage can recover a verdict, unless his or her testimony is corroborated by some other material evidence in support of such promise; and the fact that the defendant did not answer letters affirming that he had promised to marry the plaintiff is not such corroboration. (1) An accomplice shall be a competent witness against an accused person, and a conviction is not illegal merely because it proceeds upon the uncorroborated testimony of an accomplice: Provided that in cases tried with a jury when the only proof against a person charged with a criminal offence is the evidence of an accomplice, uncorroborated in any material particular implicating the accused, the Judge shall warn the jury that it is unsafe to convict any person upon such evidence, though they have a legal right to do so and in all other cases the court shall so direct itself.

The most common staging scene happens when somebody tries to make a murder look like an accident or a suicide. If you are unable to pay the fine you can sometimes make alternative arrangements through a Fine Option Program. The judge also sets bail, and the amount can range from nothing to millions of dollars. This Act may be called the Indian Evidence Act, 1872. There are four stages that ought to be considered when approaching the testimony of a potentially unsavoury witness, namely: the evidence of certain witnesses is identified as requiring special scrutiny; the characteristics of the witness that bring his or her evidence into serious question are identified; the trier of fact is cautioned that although it is entitled to act on the unconfirmed evidence of such a witness, it is dangerous to do so; the trier of fact is cautioned to look for other independent evidence which tends to confirm material parts of the evidence of the witness with respect to whom the warning has been given.
