LATIN

An alibi is a form of defense used in criminal procedure wherein the accused attempts to prove that they were in some other place at the time the alleged offense was committed. The Criminal Law Deskbook of Criminal Procedure[1] states: "Alibi is different from all of the other defenses; it is based upon the premise that the defendant is truly innocent." In Latin, alibī means "somewhere else."
