United States v. Moore, No. 11-5095 (4th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant was convicted of carjacking, using a firearm in furtherance of carjacking, and conspiracy. Defendant appealed the district court's denial of his motion for a new trial, arguing that the discovery of the actual dates of the Short Hair Picture - a photo of a second suspect with short hair - and the Dreadlocks Picture - a photo of the second suspect with dreadlocks - constituted newly discovered evidence and, alternatively, that the government's failure to disclose this fact violated Brady v. Maryland. The court concluded that defendant was entitled to a new trial because the court found that the district court erred in rejecting defendant's newly-discovered-evidence argument.
