Does a person have to respond to police questions if he or she hasn’t been arrested?

The trial judge's function (as gatekeeper) is to guard against the admission of hearsay evidence which is unnecessary in the context of the issue to be decided, or the reliability of which is neither readily apparent from the trustworthiness of its contents, nor capable of being meaningfully tested by the ultimate trier of fact (see Khelawon, at paras. 2-3). (5) The criterion of necessity is founded on society's interest in getting at the truth and is intended to ensure that the evidence presented to the court be in the best available form, usually by calling the maker of the statement as a witness.

Witnesses can also be very influential in offering evidence to a case. A. fails in the attempt in consequence of Z. having nothing in his pocket. However, there is much ambiguity inherent in this term. The majority held that the witnesses could testify as to the accused’s intoxication but not to the unfitness to drive.

One of the main reasons for excluding evidence is on the basis of reliability. Before you may rely on circumstantial evidence to conclude that a fact necessary to find the defendant guilty has been proved, you must be convinced that the People have proved each fact essential to that conclusion beyond a reasonable doubt.
