  • Is it legal to allow a person to be a witness with out checking their character ?

    Legal

    John’s Answer

    Generally, there's not "background check" that takes place prior to someone becoming a witness in the case. If they have a sketchy past, an attorney needs to bring it out on cross-examination.
