The declarant refuses to testify; 
The declarant does not remember;
The declarant is either dead or has a physical or mental illness that prevents testimony; or
The declarant is absent from the trial and has not been located.

It is offered to help prove a material fact
It is more probative than other equivalent and reasonably obtainable evidence
Its admission would forward the cause of justice
The other parties have been notified that it will be offered into evidence
