Is it true you have the right to confront your accusor
Brooklyn, NY |
Can this issue be brought up? Even if da claims its for safety but thats not true because the person keeps trying to contact me I have the proof so can I use that right to confront accusor if they plan on going to trial?
Assuming the DA needs the accuser to make out a case (and the DA doesn't alwyers) your lawyer will have the right to cross-examine the person during the trial.
