Beintema v. Everett, United States District Court for the District of Wyoming
In Beintema v. Everett, United States District Court for the District of Wyoming, Case No. 99- CV-35-J, 2001 WL 630512 (D.Wyo. April 23, 2001) (unpublished), that court ruled that a state prosecutor violated Beintema's right to a fair trial under Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83, (1963) by withholding relevant, material, exculpatory, and impeachment evidence which inhibited full cross-examination of the state's single key prosecution witness.
The evidence that was withheld involved threats from a police detective to prosecute other members of the family of the prosecution's star witness if he did not cooperate in testifying in the prosecution of Beintema.
