What is “Hearsay”?

by John McKiggan

Hearsay is a term lawyers use to describe statements made by someone who is not in court to testify about what they heard. For example, if you were testifying in trial, you could say: “I saw the car drive through the read light” because you are testifying about something you actually saw happen.

On the other hand, if you said: “Bob told me that he saw the car drive through the red light” that would be hearsay, because Bob isn’t in court to testify about what he saw.
