Rule 106. Remainder Of Or Related Writings Or Recorded Statements.

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Rules text
Whenever a writing or recorded statement or part thereof is introduced by a party, an adverse party may require him at that time to introduce any other part or any other writing or recorded statement which in fairness ought to be considered contemporaneously with it.

Trial court did not abuse its discretion by allowing the state to introduce the transcript of police interviews with the victim, which included parts of the statement that were not introduced by the state, because the defense expressly referred to selective portions of the interviews while attempting to show that the investigator coaxed or cajoled the victim into giving incriminating testimony; thus, the entire transcript of the two interviews were properly admitted to refute a charge of improper influence and to provide context.
