Trial Year1992
BodySupreme court
OpinionThe Arizona Supreme Court held that the defendant was prejudiced by the prosecution's failure to disclose crucial bite mark videotape produced by the state's dental expert until the day before trial and by the trial court's denial of continuance to allow the defendant to meet the tardily disclosed evidence. "The State's discovery violation related to critical evidence in the case against the accused. We cannot say it did not affect the verdict. We reverse the convictions and remand for a new trial, where Krone will have an opportunity to meet the force of the videotape." Krone was retried and found guilty, but in 2002, he was exonerated based on DNA evidence.
