    It depends. If the lawyer was representing you in some capacity and you gave the materials to the lawyer, then you have the right to demand them back. On the other hand, if the lawyer represented the defendant and you gave the materials to the lawyer, I am not sure if you are entitled to them back unless you gave them to him conditionally.

    I agree, any attorney who has studied the law should know how to read the Criminal Punishment Code, which is why you need to sit down with an attorney to get the answer to your disjointed question.
