  1. Admission

    An admission in the law of evidence is a prior statement by an adverse party which can be admitted into evidence over a hearsay objection. In general, admissions are admissible in criminal and civil cases. At common law, admissions were admissible. A statement could only be excluded by a showing of involuntariness, unfairness, or that the circumstances under which the statement was obtained was improper or illegal. In the United States, "Admission by a party-opponent" is explicitly excepted from hearsay under the Federal Rules of Evidence. Rule 801. Among several types of admissions, the rule notes that an admission can be the "party's own statement" or a statement in which the "party has manifested an adoption or belief in its truth." Under both common law and the Federal Rules of Evidence, an admission becomes legally invalid after nine years from the date of the initial admission.

Examples of admission in a Sentence

  1. Michael Zeldin:

    In some sense, Paul Manafort has already testified through the admission of Paul Manafort emails, as a prosecutor, you can say Gates was credible. He's not a saint, he's an admitted sinner, he's going to go to jail for his sins, but what he told you today is true. We know it's true because of all the other witnesses who we'll go through the testimony of, and all the documentary evidence which we'll go through, including emails from Mr. Paul Manafort, that corroborate Paul Manafort testimony.

  2. Marcus Tullius Cicero:

    . . . for until that God who rules all the region of the sky. . . has freed you from the fetters of your body, you cannot gain admission here. Men were created with the understanding that they were to look after that sphere called Earth, which you see in the middle of the temple. Minds have been given to them out of the eternal fires you call fixed stars and planets, those spherical solids which, quickened with divine minds, journey through their circuits and orbits with amazing speed....

    This guidance is a further admission of the dire situation that some doctors and healthcare workers continue to find themselves in because of government failings, if it's being proposed that staff reuse equipment, this must be demonstrably driven by science and the best evidence – rather than availability – and it absolutely cannot compromise the protection of healthcare workers.

  5. Dimitri Christakis:

    We can improve ratings to help parents better screen movies, apps, video programs and games. And despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, it strains credulity why prohibiting minors from purchasing games designated as ‘ for adults only ’ by the industry itself is a violation of free speech when the same standard is not applied to pornography or even admission to R-rated movies.
