In some Ohio counties, if you’re charged with a felony, your defense attorney won’t have access to all of the records. The prosecutor decides which parts your attorney gets.
Ohio doesn’t require open file discovery in criminal cases, where both sides share documents, namely, police reports and witness statements.
Many prosecutors say sharing those reports place victims in danger of retaliation. Defense attorneys argue too many innocent people end up in prison.
