St. Louis, MO (KTRS) St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce must turn over personal information on victims and witnesses to defense attorneys.
That’s according to a judge’s ruling on Wednesday, stemming from an on-going battle between Joyce and Mary Fox, the city’s head public defender. Joyce has exercised a policy of redacting personal information from police reports before turning those reports over to defense attorneys.
Fox sued Joyce, claiming that her actions violated a 1979 Missouri Supreme Court rule detailing what information about witnesses must be disclosed before trials. Meanwhile, Joyce’s office says an appeal is planned.
