Stafford Accused of Withholding Evidence – Verdict Reversed

It’s fundamental that everyone has the right to a fair trial in the United States. Or is it?

Apparently that right might not exist in some Stafford cases, according to a breaking news article.

A judge just set aside an assault verdict where a jury convicted the defendant. The defense attorney accused the Commonwealth’s Attorney of withholding exculpatory evidence, which was required to be given to the defense.

What sort of evidence? Part of it is a statement from the victim to Stafford law enforcement that his assailant doesn’t match the description of the defendant that Stafford charged and convicted. Yeah, I’d say that might matter in court.

All the more reason why anyone charged with any type of offense in Stafford should talk to an attorney asap.
