Suppression of Favorable Evidence to the Defendant

In Rogers v. State, 782 So. 2d 373 (Fla. 2001), the Court concluded that a defendant was prejudiced by the suppression of favorable evidence because that "evidence could have been used to show that another person" committed the crime, and also "could have been used to directly impeach the testimony" of a witness upon whom "the State's case for conviction was substantially predicated." Id. at 383.
