Can someone be convicted of molestation with no physical evidence and no victim testimony?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Physical evidence and victim testimony are not required. There are many forms of evidence, eye-witness testimony, circumstantial forms of evidence that allow the trier of fact to conclude the defendant is guilty, etc. This question is very broad and difficult to answer, but if there is evidence to convince a trier of fact that the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt then they can be convicted.
