The Busy Lawyer’s Guide to Character Evidence and Impeachment Part II presented by Rene Valladares



Rene Valladares, Federal Public Defender, District of Nevada and author of A Defender’s Guide to Federal Evidence, presents this evidence series designed for the busy practitioner.

This second of two sessions provides a roadmap for dealing with character evidence (FRE 404 and 405), including how to defend against 404(b) prior bad act evidence, and how to use FRE 404(b) to bolster the defense case. It will cover character evidence in the context of sexual assault cases (FRE 413) and child molestation cases (FRE 414). How to attack the credibility of witnesses for untruthfulness (FRE 608), and the rules dealing with impeachment by criminal conviction (FRE 609) will also be discussed.
