Rule 505. Husband-Wife Privileges.
Evidence Rule 505 has been substantially revised since this commentary was first published.

Spousal immunity applies only to testimony by a spouse. If the marriage is a sham or has been terminated by divorce, annulment, or death, there is no privilege. See AS 25.05.011-25.05.391.

This exception does not permit disclosure of communications that merely reveal a plan to commit a crime or fraud; it permits disclosure only of communications made to enable or aid anyone to commit or plan to commit a crime or fraud.
