CT lawmakers consider updating evidence sharing bill

Connecticut

(WTNH) — Connecticut is considering a plan to help strengthen a state law, specifically when it comes to how prosecutors share evidence with defendants and their lawyers.

The proposed plan would have prosecutors submit the evidence before a deadline for the defense to accept or reject a plea bargain. This would also affect how police submit evidence.

There will be a public hearing on the matter on Monday.
