|RULE §29.23||Offer of Proof|
When testimony is excluded by ruling of the judge, the party offering such evidence shall be permitted to make an offer of proof by dictating or submitting in writing the substance of the proposed testimony, prior to the conclusion of the hearing, and such offer of proof shall be sufficient to preserve the point for review. The judge may ask such questions of the witness as he or she deems necessary to determine that the witness would testify as represented in the offer of proof. An alleged error in sustaining an objection to questions asked on cross-examination may be preserved without making an offer of proof.
