    evidence to prove her innocence.

    Is "evidence" always uncountable except when it is with an article like the following example?

    ex)The man has evidence to prove her innocence.(uncountable)
    * There isn't a shred of evidence that the meeing actually took place.(countable)

    Re: evidence to prove her innocence.

    Evidence is always uncountable.

    In your second example it's shred that's countable.
