    Discovery is the general process of a defendant obtaining information possessed by a prosecutor regarding the defendant’s case. This information includes documents, video, audio, reports, and other materials that the District Attorney’s Office will rely upon to prosecute a case. The accused person or defendant in a case has the right to obtain access to this information to prepare their defense and it is provided at no cost.

    The Discovery Unit also handles non-media Criminal Justice Records Act requests.
