Chapter 33 Quiz

Question:

How do you present your forensic information when testifying in court, in order to ensure that the accuracy of the information presented is unobfuscated? Specifically - how do you deal with uncertainty?.

Answer:

You must remember that there are degrees of certainty. Something can be generally true, which means that, barring some atypical behavior the majority of cases occur in a certain manner. You must remember when to declare something a reasonable certainty, and this means that when answering questions, you state your answer in order to convey the most accurate account of the likelihood of what happened. You must also remember when to convey a lack of doubt.
