The Court Addresses Admissibility of Evidence Related to a Collateral Crime the Test Being Its Relevence

In Bryan v. State, 533 So. 2d 744 (Fla. 1988), the court addressed the admissibility of evidence related to a collateral crime: The test of the admissibility of such evidence is one of relevancy. Even if the evidence in question tends to reveal the commission of a collateral crime, it is admissible if found to be relevant for any purpose save that of showing bad character or propensity to commit crimes or other bad acts. Id. at 746-47 (quoting Randolph v. State, 463 So. 2d 186, 189 (Fla. 1984)).
