Withhold in context

There are significant challenges to defendants discovering and obtaining relief based on prosecutors’ withholding of favorable evidence. The evidence can be difficult to discover because it may never be released by the prosecution. Even when hidden evidence comes to light, courts have significant discretion in determining whether the disclosure of the evidence would have changed the outcome of the case. This means that even when a court finds that the prosecution hid favorable evidence, it may not reverse the case.
