Title 24, Chapter 9, Section 83
A witness may be impeached by contradictory statements previously
made by him as to matters relevant to his testimony and to the case.
Before contradictory statements may be proved against him, unless
they are written statements made under oath in connection with some
judicial proceedings, the time, place, person, and circumstances
attending the former statements shall be called to his mind with as
much certainty as possible. If the contradictory statements are in
writing and in existence, they shall be shown to him or read in his
hearing. To lay this foundation, the witness may be recalled at any
time. When thus impeached, the witness may be sustained by proof of
general good character, the effect of the evidence to be determined
by the jury.
