Inculpatory Evidence Law and Legal Definition

Inculpatory evidence is evidence that establish the guilt of an accused. It indicates that a defendant committed a crime. Inculpatory evidence shows, or tends to show, a defendant's involvement in an act. In criminal law, evidence that favors the prosecution's case is called the inculpatory evidence. It is the opposite of exculpatory evidence, which indicates the innocence of the accused. For example, if a man is stabbed to death by a knife and if such knife is found in possession of such wife then that knife will be considered as inculpatory evidence against the wife.
