Admission of Evidence

Definition - What does Admission of Evidence mean?

Admission of evidence is the act of the judge in a court case confirming that they are prepared to allow a specific piece of evidence in to the case. The judge always has the option of not allowing any piece of evidence. The only evidence that is allowed to be admitted are pieces that have been proven to be true. There are times when a relevant and sometimes crucial piece of evidence is ruled inadmissible. For instance, when the crime scene was contaminated or where reasonable doubt exists against the validity of the piece of evidence, then the evidence would most likely be deemed inadmissible.
