Rule 613 Prior Statements of Witnesses

(a) Examining witness concerning prior statement. In examining a witness

concerning a prior statement made by the witness, whether written or not, the

statement need not be shown nor its contents disclosed to the witness at that time,

but on request it shall be shown or disclosed to opposing counsel and the witness.

(b) Extrinsic evidence of prior inconsistent statement of witness. Extrinsic evidence

of a prior inconsistent statement by a witness is not admissible unless the witness

is afforded an opportunity to explain or deny the same and the opposite party is

afforded an opportunity to interrogate the witness thereon, or the interests of

justice otherwise require. This provision does not apply to admissions of a partyopponent as defined in Rule 801(d)(2).
