The physical object that is introduced in court and identified as evidence.
Exhibits are evidence presented to the jury during a criminal or civil trial in the form of physical or written documents. The jurors are given the opportunity to examine the artifact or document in question. A weapon, an invoice or contract, a photograph or a video clip are all examples of potential evidence.
To ensure proper evidence management, the recovered object must be identical to the one presented in court.« Back to Glossary Index
