(b) A statement may not be admitted under this exception unless the
proponent of it makes known to the adverse party sufficiently in advance of the
trial or hearing to provide the adverse party with a fair opportunity to
prepare to meet it, the proponent's intention to offer the statement, and the
particulars of the statement, including the name
of the declarant.
(c) Unavailability as a witness under this Section is limited to the
situation in which the declarant is deceased.
(d) Any prior statement that is sought to be admitted under this Section
must have been made by the declarant under oath at a trial, hearing, or other
proceeding and been subject to cross-examination by the adverse party.
(e) Nothing in this Section shall render a prior statement inadmissible for
purposes of impeachment because the statement was not recorded or otherwise
fails to meet the criteria set forth in this Section.
