There are different rules in different courts, in different states in the Federal System of what they have to give you and when they have to give it to you!
Shirley, can you zerox all the files on the Gambini-Robinstein case for Mr. Gambini?
They have to give you scientific tests, documentary evidence. They have to give you the statements of the witnesses that are going to be used against you!
He has to! By law, you are entitled! He has to give you a list of all those witnesses. You can talk to all his witnesses. He is not allowed any surprises.
Certain things are absolute, any evidence that a prosecutor has that you may not be guilty of the crime, what we call exculpatory evidence has to be turned over, it has to be turned over immediately upon the government getting it.
He has to show you everything, otherwise it could be a mistrial.
That could endanger the prosecution! If we can convince the judge that they violated the rule about giving us exculpatory information, a conviction if you are convicted could be thrown out.
