The Brady/Giglio List

In the last few weeks, I have become familiar with a list held by all State Attorneys known as the “Brady List” or the “Brady/Giglio List”.  The purpose of this list is to be reference for the State Attorney of law enforcement officers who have been PROVEN to be untruth.  The State Attorney is bound by law to keep such a list as to not rely on these dishonored officers to be put on the stand in a trial as their documented untruthfulness makes them a liability in front of a judge and jury.

There should be uniform criteria across the states, counties, and cities as to who rises to the level of dishonesty to make this list. However, as with most things in the First Judicial Circuit of Florida there seems to be no outlined criteria, leaving the subjectivity to the law enforcement agency and no quality control to verify the authenticity of this list. So, anyone can be on that list. The following are the lists of current Brady Lists held by the State Attorney Bill Eddins office:

Please notice that in the Escambia County List, particularly, there are not case numbers to justifying the placement of the officers’ names; also the “charges” outlined, in many cases. Ambiguous rationales like “misconduct”, “insubordination”, “improper conduct”, or “moral character”. Those are inexact, subjective terms without any specific connection to perjury or untruthfulness.  The letters referenced are to defense attorneys in the area informing on the discredited officers. But the problematic issue is who makes this list and what offenses put an officer on such a list. Is this being used as a weapon to punish out of favor officers? If it is, let the defamation suits begin!!!
