The section of the trial in which the party with the burden of proof (here, the prosecution), presents its case through evidence is the case-in-chief portion.

When the prosecution rests the defense may decide to present their case in this manner as well, but often choose to prove their case through simple cross-examination and objection to evidence.

In a party’s case-in-chief, evidence will be set forth meticulously in an attempt to persuade the jury to accept their side of the story. Evidence is presented, be it physical or in the form of witness testimony.

Eyewitnesses, witnesses, and experts will be brought forth to testify about what they know or have seen. A range of physical evidence can be presented, from documents to weapons and drugs.
