What does Testimony mean?

Testimony at a car accident trial is information or a declaration from a witness who is under oath. It is given in front of the court, and it is a verbal statement which is offered as evidence for either the defendant or the prosecution.

Witnesses who lie under oath in their testimony are said to have committed perjury. Perjury can occur when the witness misstates any testimony that is material to the judicial proceeding. Perjury is a serious offense and frequently leads to a "miscarriage of justice" in the court decision making process. Perjury in the United States is considered a felony and may allow the witness to be sentenced to up to five years in prison.
