Marine Discharge Upgrade Lawyers

In United States v. Rodriquez, the CAAF ruled that in the armed forces there are two distinct rules of completeness, Rule 106 and Rule 304(h)(2). The Court ruled that Rule 106 applies when fairness demands that the rest of the evidence be treated contemporaneously with the portions of the evidence offered by the opposition. They adopted a standard about Rule 304(h)(2) which permits for admissibility of statements made by the accused at the time the defense introduces the remainder of a statement or statements that are explanatory or relevant to the confession or admission of the accused previously offered by the government. This is permitted even when the statements the defense seeks to admit are otherwise inadmissible hearsay.
