Did you know that habit is an admissible piece of evidence in court? In auto accident cases, habit often comes into play with regards to seat-belt usage. A man’s freedom rested on his habits in a criminal case in New York City in recent years. He had the habit of calling his friend every day before work to wake him, just before 3 am. They would then ride to work together. He was accused of committing crime at this exact time. The review of his cell phone records, along with the testimony of his friend, revealed he was in fact en-route to work at the time of the incident. Later testimony of the victim showed he was not the man wanted for the grisly assault.
