Hearsay Evidence Legal Definition

© Pribanic & Pribanic

Hearsay Evidence legal definition: Hearsay evidence is a statement made out of court that is repeated during legal proceedings to prove a statement or matter is the truth. Hearsay is unreliable, second-hand evidence that is not generally admissible in court as evidence. 

It should be noted, however, that there are many legal exceptions to the hearsay rule. That means that even if a statement meets the legal standard of hearsay, it could still be admissible in court under Federal Evidence Rules.
