Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

Competency 1: Articulate how the rules of criminal procedure apply to a criminal justice practitioner.

Competency 3: Apply the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments in a criminal justice context.

Introduction

In Brady v. Maryland (1963), the U.S. Supreme Court held that due process is violated when the prosecution suppresses evidence favorable to an accused upon request where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment. The Brady Rule on Disclosure of Evidence to the Accused purports that the prosecutor has a duty to disclose evidence favorable to a defendant. Many cases have since been decided that provide additional insight and clarification to this rule, such as United States v. Agurs (1976), United States v. Bagley (1985), Kyles v. Whitley (1995), and Strickler v. Greene (1999).
