Behind one big tangle misunderstanding! I was accused on a one account of a 288(a) P.C. Charge on 8/21/1989; with a life time sex registration. After all these 27/28 years; I never read the police reporter, from what I told this police officer before he arrested me, and was 100% believed by the D.A.? And since then this planted root ruin my life. To have a life time sentence for a crime, whether you did it or not! How could it be that the court reporter's transcripts are totally destroyed and everything about the case. But I'm sent documents that's un-useful or against me, Etc.
No attorney can give you an unredacted report.
SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
An attorney is under a duty to redact the names of potential witnesses and victims, as well as their addresses and phone numbers. Sorry, you could be given a road map to such people and, as you suggest, you would like to address them or settle the score.
No attorney can give you an unredacted report. It is a misdemeanor to do so. I know that lifetime sex registration has make your life difficult, but at some point, you have to move on and make the best of a bad situation. Besides, even if you had the information, what good would it do you? Nothing good i suspect.

This isn't the answer that you want to hear, but at this point after nearly three decades, you're beyond being able to do anything.
First, just because we are attorneys doesn't mean we can just demand and get any police report. Next - there are rules regarding disclosure of witness information, so even if we had the reports, we couldn't disclose the information to you.
And finally - even if you had the information, you are well beyond any time frames to file motions, appeals, etc.
I'm sorry that you've got this burden as a result of your conviction, but the time to fight was back in 1989.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place.
