Does an alleged victim of an aggravated assault/domestic violence have a right to obtain all documented evidence?

My fiancé was charged with this crime even though it did not occur. Two witnesses told the arresting officer they had seen her hit me with a car she had been driving but I denied the allegations against her yet she was still arrested. In my copy of the police report, the witnesses’ names had been removed. Also, CSI took photos of my slip and fall injuries. Am I allowed to obtain copies of the photographs and witnesses’ statement forms?

    Your attorney should have access to the entire file. If the witnesses were minors they names will be redacted. Police have very little discretion in domestic cases.

    No you're not. That's why he needs to hire a lawyer, who will be able to obtain the documents for "him" (not you).
