BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, declined to grant the defendant a new trial for failing to turn over photographic evidence. "The defendant's counsel did not move to strike, for a curative instruction, or for a continuance to review the surveillance photographs. Indeed, he asked for no remedy until all of the witnesses had testified, whereupon he moved for a mistrial. Under the circumstances, the trial court providently exercised its discretion in denying the motion. Less severe measures, had they been promptly requested, could have rectified the harm caused by the prosecutor's failure to timely disclose the photographs."
