Highlight

Lay opinion testimony must be rationally based on the perceptions of the witness.
Lay opinion testimony is admissible only to help the jury or court understand the facts about which the witness is testifying and not to provide specialized explanations or interpretations an untrained layman could not make if perceiving the same acts or events.
If evidence is admitted in error, the entire record will be considered and the court will decide in light of all the evidence whether the error was so prejudicial that the defendant's rights were affected and a different decision would have occurred absent the error.
