New Problems At San Francisco DA's Office

May 13, 2010 @ 05:08 PM — by Myles L. Berman

It has been reported the San Francisco District Attorney's Office failed to disclose to the defense the criminal histories of 80 police officers who may have testified in criminal cases including DUI / Drunk Driving cases. Apparently, any prior convictions of testifying police officers were not brought to the attention of the District Attorney's Office. As a result, apparently police officers with criminal histories may have been allowed to testify without being asked by defense attorneys about their criminal histories which may have included DUI / Drunk Driving cases. Unfortunately for the District Attorney's Office, they have a legal obligation to find out if any of their witness have criminal histories even in DUI / Drunk Driving cases.
