Ask A Lawyer: Carleas Thread.

Postby Zero_Sum » Fri Apr 06, 2018 5:41 pm

So me and Wendy were watching the news together today where it was about a man suspected of murdering his wife but of course there is only suspicion without any kind of material evidence.

Can you really charge people for crimes without material evidence with only hearsay, suspicion, accusation, and circumstantial evidence? I thought the state requires actual physical material evidence to charge people with stuff. Without physical material evidence it seems like a slippery slope in that anybody can be charged with anything that is based upon accusation.

What is your interpretation on this Carleas as a lawyer?

I can tell you that when any spouse is murdered
the other spouse is always the first person
suspected, always....

Sure, that is a given with suspicion but, what to do when there is no evidence of a crime perpetrated?

Of course a person can be charged without evidence. It happens all the time. Then a grand jury throws it out on lack of evidence.
