scope of cross examination
- View Source
 In order to give proper scope to the right of confrontation, a court must allow
broad cross-examination of a prosecution witness as to bias, prejudice, and motivation
for testifying. People v. Bowman, 669 P.2d 1369 ( Colo. 1983). However, an accused's
right to confront and to cross-examine Witnesses is not absolute and may be limited to
accommodate other legitimate interests in the criminal trial process. The competing
interests must be carefully scrutinized. People v. Cole, 654 P.2d 830 ( Colo. 1982).
