DUI Case Discovery
Discovery is the part of the Bucks County DUI-Drunk Driving case when both the prosecution (Bucks County District Attorney) and the defendant exchange information about the Bucks County DUI case. Almost always, this is a one-way transfer of a package of documents from the Bucks County District Attorney to the DUI defense attorney.
In Bucks County, a DUI defendant or his or her attorney must request Discovery from the District Attorney. DUI defense lawyers in Bucks County usually request Discovery from the District Attorney by way of a Request for Discovery.
If Discovery is properly requested, you will receive the Discovery package about 2-3 weeks before your scheduled Bucks County DUI trial. The Bucks County Discovery package includes the Criminal Complaint, the Police Report, the Charging Document, Blood Alcohol Testing Report, and the results of your criminal records search.
It takes an experienced Bucks County DUI-drunk driving attorney such as Michael L. Saile, Jr., Esq. to carefully review the Discovery package to spot any issues that could help you win your Bucks County DUI case.
