New Discovery procedures
District Attorney Charles Branson
Changes to the Discovery Process
Starting December 1, 2017, the District Attorney’s Office will be using a new web based
discovery system for dissemination of discovery to defense attorneys (Document Manager 5).
Attorneys will be able to log on to a secure web server and retrieve all discovery documents
associated with their case(s). Additionally, when new materials are loaded into a case, the
attorney will receive an email indicating there are new documents ready for review.
Presently, all incident reports, supplemental reports, labs results, photos, video and audio files
will be uploaded to the system. There will be times when excessively large files will still need to
be distributed on disc.
Cases filed BEFORE December 1, 2017, will not be loaded into the new system. Pre-December
1, 2017 cases will continue to be disseminated as they are now.
