The prosecution in this case has not fulfilled their obligations under Brady and its progeny by failing to disclose material evidence that is potentially exculpatory and/or impeaching. If disclosed, such evidence could reasonably impact the defendant's right to a fair trial and the outcome of the case. The prosecution’s failure to disclose is evidenced by the non-compliance of their office and affiliated law enforcement agencies in utilizing the platform of record, via contribution and discovery disclosures.
Prosecutors have a constitutional duty and obligation to disclose evidence that is favorable to an accused and material to guilt or punishment, this includes evidence that is potentially exculpatory or impeaching in nature. This obligation is vital in safeguarding the integrity of the criminal justice system. The prosecutor’s duties extend not only to evidence held within their own files but also to evidence contained within file of law enforcement.
