In South Florida and all of its jurisdictions such as Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami-Dade county, Broward county and Palm Beach county, a criminal case starts with the State putting all the evidence they have together. Now, the defense counsel has the right, under Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 3.220, to view, inspect, and copy all the physical or testimonial evidence that the State will use at trial.
How does the attorney do that? The first thing a defense attorney will file is a Notice of Appearance, along with a Written Plea of Not Guilty and a Demand for Discovery. The demand for discovery part will demand the State, under the Rule 3.220, to disclose the evidence they have against the defendant.
