This course will focus on the importance of communications between the police and prosecutor in terms of turning over evidence to the defense – especially evidence that might exonerate the defendant. Many of the presented lessons learned will be from a death penalty case in Maricopa County from the early 1990s that was reversed in 2013 because of evidence that wasn’t shared due to potential police misconduct in a key officer-witness.
