What is ‘Discovery?’
Discovery is a means through which you can compel the state to reveal information in its possession or within its knowledge that may assist your case.
It is the duty of the prosecution to disclose evidence that might be favorable to the defense if it is material to either issue of guilt or to possible punishment. This duty is ongoing from the time of arraignment until the beginning of the trial.
