Judge ‘Had It’ with Prosecution Withholding Evidence

A DC Superior Court judge said he has “had it” with the prosecution withholding evidence.

Alphonso Walker,41, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting Dalonte Wilson, 23, and Antone Brown, 44. The double homicide occurred on April 25, 2018, on the 400 block of 61st Street, NE.

On June 7, Walker’s defense attorney, Judith Pipe, said the prosecution was withholding evidence, including crime scene reports and the transcript of a witness’s testimony.

Multiple issues were also raised with the prosecution’s investigation, including the “timely” appearance of  a witness. According to the defense attorney, the sudden appearance should place doubt on the witness’s testimony.

In response, DC Superior Court Judge Milton C. Lee said he has “had it with the Brady reports” from the defense. Judge Lee told the prosecution to begin to make the evidence available.

Walker is scheduled for a felony arraignment on Sept. 27.
