@MalikaDulce ...! LII/WEX... Admission Definition 1) A person's, in particular a party's, statement acknowledging that a certain fact is true or silence after another party's assertion of a fact that, if false, would typically elicit a denial. 2) Admission by a party-opponent: an out-of-court statement by a party that is against the party's interest and that is admissible against the party, because admissions by party-opponents are not considered hearsay. Illustrative caselaw See, e.g. Rawlings v. Kentucky, 448 U.S. 98 (1980). See also Admission against interest ___________________________ Admission Against Interest Definition An out-of-court statement by a party that, when uttered, is against the party's pecuniary, proprietary, or penal interest and that is admissible under both an exclusion (admission by a party-opponent) and an exception (statement against interest) to the rule against hearsay. Such a statement is admissible even if the declarant is available, because an admission by a party-opponent is non-hearsay and, thus, does not require unavailability. Illustrative caselaw See, e.g. On Lee v. U.S., 343 U.S. 747 (1952).
