Military Rule of Evidence 513

Many laws surround the admittance of evidence in cases. In the military legal system, all pieces of evidence must be submitted far in advance and approved by the governing body. Some evidence requires special permission before it can be admitted.

About the Rule

This rule exists to protect conversations between a mental health professional and his or her patient. While these conversations are kept confidential in most cases, this rule does allow a handful of exceptions when those conversations have important bearings on the case.

In particular, this most often happens in cases involving sexual assault, when the person’s testimony serves as large portion of the evidence submitted. It can also be applied when the judge deems it necessary and fitting the best interests of the case.
