Can a Person Be Convicted Without Physical Evidence?
There is always some form of physical evidence. The physical evidence can come in the form of bullet shells, autopsy/medical findings. If there were no physical evidence present, there could still be eyewitness testimony, statements from the accused, circumstantial evidence, and more. The question is, if there is enough evidence to prove to a jury that without a shadow of a doubt, the accused committed the murder. If the jury doesn’t believe the prosecution witnesses, then the defendant can be acquitted.
Can Video Be Used as Evidence?
Using video evidence is possible in court. If you would like to use evidence in court, your attorney will have to prove to the judge that the video is relevant to your case and is reliable. To prove that your video is authentic and reliable to the court you must have great lighting, the timing of the recording must be right, and the location must be correct. Video from traffic cameras carries much more credibility than video captured from a cell phone because the video source can be found.
