NY County Prosecutor accused of doing the dirty deed in 15 drug cases

This looks bad in the press and I bet the judge won’t be happy either. Withholding evidence in 15 cases?

excerpt from Syracuse, Cayuga county, NY.

AUBURN, N.Y. ā€“ Tyrone Matthews could’ve been sentenced to 23 more years in prison than his case warranted.

He was charged as a drug dealer, not as the guy who brought the dealer and buyer together.

His role as a go-between was spelled out in a police report that was not initially turned over to Matthews’ lawyer.

Under the law, a prosecutor has to give accused criminals any evidence that they can use in their defense.

The former assistant Cayuga County district attorney who initially handled Matthews’ case told the defense lawyer about the undisclosed police report in January. A judge later ordered the district attorney, Jon Budelmann, to turn it over.
