Hostile Witnesses

Wisconsin Trial Procedures

Whenever a witness provides testimony in court that contradicts or is inconsistent with a previous statement, the witness may be deemed a hostile witness.

Police Officers Regarded Hostile Witnesses

Wisconsin law provides that law enforcement officers who are called by the defense to testify at trial are deemed hostile witnesses. This allows the defense attorney to cross-examine them at trial as adverse witnesses.
