Q: Do I have the right to request Audio/Video from my arrest?: I would like the video/Audio from the officers vehicle as well as the 911 call?
Yes. You or your retained counsel may put forth a discovery request to the Office of the State Attorney for the law enforcement audio/video from your arrest. Generally, the State has 30 days to comply with your discovery request if you have been formally charged with a crime.The law enforcement audio/video may also be obtained by you through a Freedom of Information request made directly to the law enforcement agency, but it is best to allow your retained counsel to orchestrate your defense. Be aware that many law enforcement audio/video recordings do not play on portable disc players - many times a laptop or desktop computer is needed.
