Evidence of Other "Bad Acts" in Intimate Partner Violence, Sexual Violence, Stalking and Human Trafficking Prosecutions
In proving a case of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, or human trafficking, it is often helpful—even crucial—to introduce evidence that the defendant has committed some other crime or “bad act”—usually before or after (but sometimes contemporaneously with) the charged crime. Such evidence is often viewed with caution by trial and appellate courts, because of the perceived risk that juries will convict the defendant based upon evidence that s/he committed some crime other than the one charged, or that the defendant is a “bad person” and therefore probably guilty of the charged crime.
