United States v. Valenzuela

February 13, 2006

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
CARLOS VALENZUELA, A/K/A "LIL DAZE", DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lewis T. Babcock, Chief Judge United States District Court District OF Colorado

ORDER

THE COURT has reviewed the Motion by the United States to Disclose Grand Jury Material in the above captioned case. Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e)(3)(E)(I) provides that the Government may file this motion requesting disclosure ex parte. As grounds therefor, the Government has stated:

The Government has obtained testimony from a person who may be called as a trial witness. Early disclosure of this material may assist the defendant in preparing for trial.

Disclosure of pertinent portions of the Grand Jury transcripts may be in the best interests of justice. In the course of preparation for trial and during the conduct of certain pretrial matters and at trial, it may be appropriate to disclose to the defense the Grand Jury transcripts pertaining to witnesses for the limited purpose of preparing for and conducting trial and pretrial hearings. See 18 U.S.C. §3500 and Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 26.2, 16, 6(e)(3)(C)(I) and (e)(3)(D).

BEING now advised in the premises, the Court Finds, Concludes and Orders the following:

The United States Attorney's Office may disclose to the defense pertinent portions of the transcripts of witness testimony before the Grand Jury in the above captioned case after it has been determined by the Government that such witness will be called to testify at trial. The defense attorney is to maintain control over the material, keeping it in his confidential files and under the control of his confidential employees. The Court's Order here today permits pretrial disclosure and usage of the Grand Jury transcripts which would be disclosed pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3500 or Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 26.2 and 16.

The Grand Jury material so disclosed is to be used for the purposes of the above captioned case, to include any appeals taken, and for no other purpose until further order of Court.

The United States Attorney's Office is directed to enclose a copy of this Order with any Grand Jury material disclosed pursuant to this Order.
