WPI 3.03 Bad Reputation for Truth and Veracity
(The WPI Committee recommends that no instruction be given on this subject.)
An instruction on this subject would result in undue emphasis upon this evidence, and therefore should not be given. The matter can best be treated by argument of counsel.
See ER 608 (Evidence of Character and Conduct of Witness) for admissibility of such evidence.
