Any evidence the prosecutor intends to use against you at your trial must be disclosed to you in advance. This procedure is called obtaining “disclosure”. Your disclosure package can include, police or other witness statements, surveillance videos, photographs or any other type of evidence that relates to your case. Usually disclosure will not be provided on your first appearance in court. If disclosure is not available, you (or your lawyer on your behalf) will have to return to court on another occasion to obtain it from the prosecutor in court. The nature and complexity of the allegations will usually dictate how quickly disclosure is provided. The more serious or complex a case is, the longer it usually takes to obtain full disclosure of the case.
The best way to approach the situation, understand your rights and formulate a winning defence is to speak to a lawyer who has knowledge and experience in the areas that most affect you.
