BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecution violated its Rosario requirement that it provide prior statements of prosecution witnesses to the defense counsel. "[W]e note that the People's lack of candor regarding the witness's testimony before the Grand Jury unduly complicated and delayed this appeal. Had the People simply admitted that the witness testified before the Grand Jury, the defendant would have had an earlier opportunity to brief the issue of prejudice." The Court ultimately held the delay in turning over evidence did not prejudice the defendant.
