Not always. While witness testimony is an important part of many cases, it's not the only type of evidence that may be available. Making unfounded assumptions is dangerous.
Proving Guilt Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
The State Attorney has the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty. Eye witness statements are valuable in proving a case. However, this is not the only way to prove a case against you. If you have made statements against your interest, the State could use this against you. Other circumstantial evidence can be used as well.
