When You See the Government’s Evidence Against You

When you face federal charges, you will likely get the right to see the government’s evidence at some point, and should work with your attorney to use this preview to your advantage as you build your defense. The discovery stage is mandated by federal rules, providing that both sides must disclose certain critical evidence to the other, and if your case proceeds to this point, you and your lawyer will likely get a much clearer picture of the case against you. Knowing when you can get this information, how to use discovery of evidence to your advantage, and what steps to take throughout the process could drastically change the outcome you achieve in your case, so act fast to get in touch with a lawyer who knows what it takes to defend your rights and freedom after federal charges.

Our team is available 24/7 by phone and online, and will provide you with a free initial case consultation as soon as you contact our team. Our federal attorneys can advise you on when discovery will be possible, what evidence must be disclosed, and how to handle misconduct during discovery. If you have been charged, you should not wait a second longer to contact a lawyer who can protect you. Even if you are only under investigation, for instance if you have been questioned by federal agents or if you have received a target letter, you should act to obtain legal representation as soon as possible. The earlier you begin working with a lawyer, the less convincing the case against you will be, and the more you and your attorney will be able to do to challenge federal agents and the prosecution.

Evidence During a Federal Investigation in Michigan

When you are under investigation by a federal agency in conjunction with the United States Attorney, your lawyer may be able to negotiate early access to certain evidence. This is especially true if you are working out a plea deal, however the prosecutor has full power to limit the evidence you see, so it may not be too helpful. Your lawyer can advise you concerning the steps you can take and what you can do to defend yourself.

Discovery Stage of a Federal Case in Michigan

After you have been charged with a crime, your right to disclosure of evidence changes. Oral and written statements, recorded statements, grand jury testimony, documents and photographs, information from examinations, and the names of expert witnesses along with a summary of their testimony will need to be disclosed by both sides. Additionally, any evidence that favors your side of the case will need to be disclosed. Attorney work product and witness statements are exempt from disclosure during discovery.

If the U.S. attorney does not comply with discovery rules and fails to disclose relevant information, the court can order the attorney to disclose that information, grant you more time for review, or prevent the evidence from being used.

It is crucial that you work with a lawyer who understands how the federal discovery process works, and who knows how to use the government’s evidence to build your defense.
