Multiple Evidence Law and Legal Definition
Multiple evidence refers to an evidence that is admissible for a specific purpose. Such evidences are not admissible to prove a different fact. It must be confined to the specific case to which it is applied.
When an evidentiary fact is offered for one purpose, and becomes admissible by satisfying all the rules applicable to it in that capacity, it is not inadmissible because it does not satisfy the rules applicable to it in some other capacity and because the jury might improperly consider it in the latter capacity.
