Do I have the right to view the video of evidence before deciding if I should take it to trial or not?
I'm being charged with retail theft with extenuating circumstances. The person I was with was the one who committed the crime but they are saying I allowed him to put the stolen item in my purse. I was not aware of what he was doing. I was shopping and paid for my items. My public defender told me I can only see the video if I want to take it to trial. But how can I make that choice without being able to see all the evidence first?
