Title

Disclosing Exculpatory Material in Plea Negotiations

Abstract

Despite the fact that more than 90 percent of federal and state criminal cases are resolved through guilty pleas, the prosecutor's disclosure obligations regarding exculpatory material in plea negotiations remain controversial. Courts and commentators, though, have recently been paying increased attention to these issues. This column examines the current state of the law on prosecutorial disclosure of exculpatory material in plea negotiations and discusses both practical and ethical implications for defense lawyers and prosecutors.
