We’ve had a number of successful winning cases for appeals that have pivoted on Brady evidence, so we want to look at some examples of these claims.
Brady evidence is evidence that is exculpatory or mitigating.
- Exculpatory evidence is evidence that tends to show that you are not guilty of the offense.
- Mitigation evidence is evidence that tends to show that you would’ve received a lighter sentence if convicted.
Brady evidence is important because it can help to show that you are not guilty of the offense or that you would’ve received a lighter sentence if convicted. If you’re accused of a crime, you should always ask your lawyer about Brady evidence and make sure that it’s been researched and included in your case.
Brady evidence has been decided by the Supreme Court of the United States where they’ve said this is the type of evidence that if you have it in your case and you produce it in a writ application, this will overturn your case.
Examples of Winning Brady Claims
- The government failing to disclose impeachment evidence when they promised immunity to a witness in exchange for testimony.
- The police failing to disclose eyewitness testimony that contradicted another witness’ testimony which would have tended to show the person was not guilty of the offense.
- Prosecution team purposely misrepresenting pants as having bloodstains on them, when in fact, the stains were from paint.
- The failure to reveal an immunity deal with a witness.
- Failure to produce CPS records that contained exculpatory materials.
- and more as I explain in the video below.
