 Admissible:

A term used to describe evidence that may be considered by a jury or judge in civil and criminal cases.

In criminal justice, the admisibility of evidence is a major concern.  Facts need to be proven in court to demonstrate guilt, and this cannot be done without evidence.  Evidence that becomes inadmissable under the exclusionary rule, for example, is useless.
