2.1 Stipulated Testimony

            The parties have agreed what [witness]’s testimony would be if called as a witness. You should consider that testimony in the same way as if it had been given here in court. 


            There is a difference between stipulating that a witness would give certain testimony and stipulating that the facts to which a witness might testify are true. United States v. Lambert, 604 F.2d 594, 595 (8th Cir.1979); United States v. Hellman, 560 F.2d 1235, 1236 (5th Cir.1977). On the latter, see Instruction 2.2 (Stipulations of Fact).
