Circumstantial Evidence can Hurt

evidence 2

Circumstantial evidence is any evidence that does not directly prove a fact but gives rise to a logical inference that the fact exists.  The evidence can be used to establish a fact beyond a reasonable doubt.  In a recent Missouri DUI case, circumstantial evidence was used to prove that a person was driving a car, even though the car’s engine was not running, when the car was in the middle of an intersection, the car’s lights were on, and the keys were in the ignition.
