Highlight

The threshold question for determining whether a person tampered with constitutes a "witness" is whether the individual charged with tampering with that person had a reasonably founded belief that the person tampered with would testify.
The person tampered with in a witness tampering case need not be included on a witness list filed in a case in order for an individual to be convicted of tampering with that witness.
