When assembling your case, rarely do legal teams find and correctly place each and every piece of the puzzle. We can sift through evidence, and attempt to interpret both verbal and nonverbal cues displayed through testimony, but the ability to accurately discern all of the information at hand is always going to be a bit clouded. There are so many competing factors that can cause incorrect assumptions or unwarranted damage to credibility.
Since we aren’t able to get inside the head of the perpetrator, it must be understood that there will be many things that will remain unknown. That’s why we rely heavily on fact finding, uncovering a trail of evidence and information that cumulatively points to the correct verdict.
