Ok, thank you I appreciate your help. I think I'm starting to understand why.
So, let's say I have a witness that says they saw them walk down aisle 12. Is that enough?
Also, makes me wonder, do I have to question the witness that saw them walk down aisle 12 first? I have a bunch of witnesses to question so that would get kind of messy if I had to do that.
For some questions I'd have to call Witness A first other questions I would have to call Witness B first. You know what I mean?
Shoot, do you know of any online or inexpensive resources for a pro se person to do criminal questioning?
Basically, my situation is I've got a Crime Victim hearing and I've got to get people to talk. They permanently disabled me where I will be in pain the rest of my life. I see on your link that you are quite educated in criminal law. The testimony will be crucial and there are other witnesses who will try to cover up for them. That leaves me in a situation where I've got to squeeze blood out of a penny, without a deposition because I couldn't afford one.
Ok, thank you very much. I still am missing something though...
I can ask an assumed question IF I have a factual basis to back it up.-Check.
CAN that factual basis come in later testimony or does it already have to be established?
