Minnesota versus RiffCJA 304April 11, 2011Minnesota versus RiffWritten and oral communications are both used in trial court proceedings. Both are equally important to the system as written communications are often used to validate oral communications. In the following paragraphs the written and oral communications used in the Minnesota versus Riff trial by the defense, the prosecution, the judge, and the witnesses will be identified and discussed.First the prosecution will use the written report as the guideline for the case and who to receive oral testimony from. The written documentation will provide the reasoning behind the officer believing first that a crime had been committed and second that the person accused is the person who committed the crime. The witnesses the prosecutions call will corroborate that reasoning, and sometimes add to it by requesting additional witness testimony by others who have come in contact with the defendant while awaiting trial. In Minnesota versus Riff the prosecution called the witnesses that the officer had recorded information from in his report. The witnesses based his or her testimony not on character of the defendant but on the facts of when and where he or she saw Mr. Riff that night (Curran & Strauch, n.d.). The burden to prove that crime was committed and that Mr. Riff was the offender is on the prosecution. That is why the prosecution based its case on providing a time line, motive, evidence, and corroborating
