Juvenile Judge erred by dismissing a case for a discovery violation (2 27 2013)

A juvenile judge dismissed a case against a juvenile since the State failed to comply with its order to turn over full discovery. The State refused to turn over full discovery to the juvenile after it had turned over any exculpatory evidence and evidence it intended to use at a probable cause hearing. The First District Court of Appeals for Hamilton County agreed that full discovery was not required to be turned over for the probable cause hearing. It was enough to turn over any Brady materials and the evidence the State intends to use at the probable cause hearing. In re D.M., 2013-Ohio-668.
