This second of two sessions provides a roadmap for criminal defense lawyers to navigate through hearsay problems. Mr. Valladares discusses what constitutes hearsay (FREs 801 and 802), the major hearsay exclusions (FRE 801(d)) and exceptions (FREs 803 and 804), and what constitutes unavailability under FRE 804. The intersection of the hearsay rules and the Confrontation Clause is also discussed.
