What is criminal discovery in Arizona and how does it relate to my Tempe DUI case?

In legal terms, "discovery" is the process by which your Tempe DUI lawyer will obtain information about your case. During discovery, information from the prosecution, the police, and your own lawyer is obtained and disclosed. This includes information such as, but not limited to:
  • Police reports
  • Recordings of 911 calls
  • Laboratory tests, including your blood alcohol level or breathalyzer results
  • Video tapes from the scene 
  • Witness statements
  • Photographs of the scene
  • Physical evidence

Additionally, your Tempe DUI attorney may ask certain experts to review the evidence in your case. Keep in mind that not all information is disclosed to you or to the prosecution. For example, statements between you and your Tempe DUI lawyer will not be shared with the prosecution.
