Definition Edit

Direct evidence supports the truth of an assertion (in criminal law, an assertion of guilt or of innocence) directly, i.e., without an intervening inference. For example, a witness who testifies that he saw the defendant shoot the victim gives direct evidence. In direct evidence a witness relates what he or she directly experienced.
