  • A compilation of information or facts from which, when examined collectively, a strong and compelling inference can be made regarding the theory of a case. This differs from and may not be as strong as direct evidence, which would include physical evidence such as DNA or witness testimony. However, many cases are prosecuted successfully with circumstantial evidence. In criminal cases, it can be used to infer guilt and in civil cases, liability.
