What is my Motion of Discovery or Discovery in a federal criminal case?
As soon as possible, your lawyer will formally request the discovery in your case. A Motion for Discovery or a Discovery Motion is the document your lawyer creates that formally requests the discovery. The discovery is the documentary evidence, police reports, witness statements, photographs, and other evidence that the government intends to use to show that you are guilty of the offense(s) with which you have been charged. Once your lawyer has received the discovery in your case, he or she will analyze it according to source and review it with you. Your lawyer will consider possible defenses to the charges against you. Together, you and your lawyer will determine the probability of success at trial. A lawyer who has extensive federal trial experience will be able to give you accurate information at this important stage of the litigation process.
