OpinionDistrict Court granted a new trial after the prosecution failed to reveal its witness was the target of a federal drug trafficking investigation. "The court finds that had the government disclosed the impeaching evidence to defendants and put Gabriel on the witness stand, impeaching him with his recent criminal activity as well as his equally recent lies to the government would likely have affected the outcome of the case."
