DISPOSITION: ALL CHARGES DISMISSED DEFENDANT INDICTED BY UNION COUNTY GRAND JURY FOR SECOND DEGREE ELUDING, FACES 10-YEARS SENTENCE PLUS PERIOD OF PAROLE INELIGIBILITY AS PRIOR OFFENDER. In this case Lord Diplock commented that "(1) A trial judge in a criminal trial has always a discretion to refuse to admit evidence if in his opinion its prejudicial effect outweighs its probative value. (2) Save with regard to admissions and confessions and generally with regard to evidence obtained from the accused after commission of the offence, he has no discretion to refuse to admit relevant admissible evidence on the ground that it was obtained by improper or unfair means."(at p 437) In this case the court following the comments made by Lord Diplock concluded that the judge would have no power to exclude the evidence on the basis that it had been obtained through the use of an agent provocateur.

There are thus two circumstances in which a conviction is inadmissible against a criminal defendant under Rule 609(a)(1)(B), and yet admissible against any other party or witness under Rule 609(a)(1)(A): (1) when probative value equals or does not clearly outweigh prejudicial effect; or (2) when probative value is outweighed, but not substantially outweighed by prejudicial effect. Thus, to continue the example above, when a defendant is impeached with a prior conviction, a judge should immediately instruct the jury that the conviction can be considered only as it bears on the defendant's credibility and not as evidence of his guilt.

The prosecution agreed, and in April 1992 the victim's panties and shorts, a stick found near the murder scene, reference blood samples from Bloodsworth and the victim, and an autopsy slide were sent to Forensic Science Associates (FSA) for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing. This blood typing showed that Dabbs could not be excluded as a source of the semen.

I completed the LLM program between 2013 – 2015, and cannot recommend the course highly enough. Defense counsel does not violate a defendant's due process rights by seeking to prove the defendant's incompetence over the defendant's objections. These procedures may be constitutional and efficient, but they undermine key values served by admissions of guilt in open court. I received 12 months of probation for this charge and attended. I expect you will inform me as soon as you become aware of another juror’s violation of these instructions."
