Admissible Evidence (noun) – Admissible evidence under the Federal Rules of Evidence includes all testimony or tangible evidence that has any tendency to demonstrate any fact relevant to the case, if the evidence is relevant to the facts in issue and not barred by any laws or rules reflecting broader policies of evidence. Whether evidence is admissible is always a question of law, committed to the sound discretion of the trial judge.

  • A murder weapon found at a scene of a crime that has the defendants fingerprints on it would be considered admissible evidence in a court of law as long as that specific piece of evidence was used for that specific case.
