Demonstrative Evidence

n. Devices, objects, or pictures that are used in cases to clarify facts for the judge and jury. Demonstrative evidence is not actual evidence, but are aids that are used to illustrate how an accident occurred, methods that were used in committing an alleged crime, medical damages, or actual damages. Evidence such as a bullet-riddled body, opposed to a model of a knee or a photograph of an accident, borders between a legitimate aid and inflammatory evidence.
