    normally any out of court statement used for its truth or falsity where the deponent is not available to be cross-examined is hearsay.

    in this case, the statements were made an exception to the hearsay rules by 'drew's law' which was passed specifically for this case.

    so technically it's not hearsay under the law.

    but it's a very bad law.

    Media pressure can do wonders. It got OJ off and it turned a murder trial into a soap opera.

    So, why is the law fucked up? What are you supposed to do in a case such as this?

    And I wouldnÂ’t have to ask. What are you posting here for if not to share ideas and challenge each other?


    Why even post.
