Legal issues involving evidence limitations in assault claims
Like many states, Utah often places restrictions on what evidence can be presented in court when it comes to assault claims and civil lawsuits. That way, someone’s past actions or their personal character cannot be a factor in their current assault case.
The issue of evidence limitations is especially common in cases involving sexual assault claims. Specifically, the lawyer representing the person accused of sexual assault may request that restrictions be placed on what information can be shared in court about the accused’s sex life.
As a result, it’s important that you have an experienced attorney representing you who understands these evidence limitations and how to work around them. Otherwise, your case might not get the attention it deserves or could be dismissed altogether.
