Get your discovery here - Roanoke lawyers call prosecution witnesses at preliminary hearing
In what was described here as an "unusual" tactic, defense lawyers in a Roanoke murder case called as their own witnesses at a preliminary hearing in General District Court individuals who gave incriminating testimony against their client. Certainly, it is not unusual to try to wring from the preliminary hearing every bit of information possible, which was the motivation of counsel in this case, who said "I don't want any surprises at trial." Harvey Lutins and others represent the defendant.
