Toxicology

alcohol-related cases: what can they tell you? What can’t they tell you? Limited by incomplete info re: amount, concentration of alcohol consumed. May open door to victims drinking experience, amount consumed, prior behavior when intoxicated? Who do you want to cross-examine the alcohol expert?

{DC: ask past behavior questions here or elsewhere; get toxicology to talk about blackout (memory loss fr/ alcohol, but ability to talk, consent) vs. pass-out (unconscious); past history of drinking or drug use may be relevant to affect of alcohol on victim on later crime date}
