Speaking of evidences, there are 2 different kinds of testimonies that should be taken into account when in the courtroom setting, those two being Testimonial and physical.
Testimonial- Usually verbal and coming from a witness and offered as an account of proof detailing what happened
Physical- Otherwise known as real evidence, is any material object that has anything to do with the case, widely considered more reliable than the former.
