Did you know?
A criminal defense attorney can seek mistrial for prosecutorial misconduct.
If the prosecutor in a criminal trial hides important evidence or witnesses until the last minute without disclosing it during the discovery process, the defense can claim a mistrial on the basis of prosecutorial misconduct. A deadlocked jury, coaching or coercion of witnesses and jury members, improper search or seizure, and improperly served defendants and witnesses are all grounds for seeking a mistrial.
