Criminal Practice – New Trial Ordered in Carjacking Case (access required)

U.S. v. Moore In a carjacking prosecution that turned on identification of defendant as the dreadlocked offender who stole the victim’s car, the government’s error in misrepresenting the date on a photo of a different suspect without dreadlocks, who was seen driving the vehicle three days after the carjacking, means defendant is entitled to a new trial based on the new evidence; the 4th Circuit says the district court erred in rejecting defendant’s newly-discovered-evidence argument.
