A Statutory Formula for the Admission of Similar Fact Evidence Against a Criminal Accused

  • David Field

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

This thesis identifies what is described as “similar fact evidence properly so called”. It then proceeds to a critical examination of the historical treatment, by common law courts around the world, of additional misdeeds of a criminal accused, and argues that the current state of confusion surrounding the subject is due primarily to the failure to acknowledge that relevance is the key to admissibility.
