TheDoctor a écrit :True, but the drawing's diameter is slightly less than the width of the door, so considering the fissures are pretty thin, is there a way to show Sharpie in the fissures without having the picture ridiculously zoomed in? If zooming in is the only way, is there a reason this would be brought up by the prosecution if it's something that helps the defense?
A: If the case has an investigation you could just have this information be revealed there. Have the defense examine the door closely and realize the Sharpie in the fissures. If the fissures are too small to be examined with the naked eye, if the detective of the case is nearby you can have them allow the defense to use a special device to examine the fissures 4-4 style. This depends on how co-operative the detective is and the technology available at the time period.
B:Maybe the defense could bring it up in court? "The defense asserts that without closer inspection of the fissures we cannot know at what time this drawing was drawn!"
C: Maybe the prosecution wanted to see if there was something else in the cracks and accidentally discovers the Sharpie?
D: Maybe a fiber from a characters clothing is in the fissures and the prosecution presents a photo proving that the character was at one point pressed against the door or something, and in the photo it shows Sharpie behind the fiber.
