Basically, does defense have the right to know who the state is calling as a witness, or if they are calling anyone at all?
I have a misd. VOP hearing coming up based on an arrest where the charges were dropped almost immediately. I do not know why the hearing is still taking place but I received a notice to appear and the hearing date is set. Sorry to be redundant but does the prosecutor have to provide a "discovery" and name who is going to testify and what evidence they are presenting? Or is it a surprise?
I would need to bring witnesses as well so would I (or defense council) be required to provide a list of my witnesses or character references and evidence as well? Thank you so much in advance.
