2.6-8  Evidence Admitted for a Limited Purpose

Revised to December 1, 2007

You will recall that I have ruled that some testimony and evidence have been allowed for a limited purpose or for application to one defendant.  Any testimony or evidence which I identified as being limited to a purpose or a defendant, you will consider only as it relates to the limits for which it was allowed, and you shall not consider such testimony and evidence in finding any other facts as to any other issue or defendant.

For example, during the testimony of <insert name of witness> I permitted the introduction of <identify evidence admitted> as to <identify issue or defendant> and instructed you that you could use that evidence, to the extent that you find it should be given weight, only as to that <identify issue or defendant>.  Any other use of that testimony would be improper.


See State v. Esposito, 223 Conn. 299, 323 (1992); State v. Tyron, 145 Conn. 304, 309 (1958).
