What is the record of a police officer involved in a sexual assault investigation?

California, United States of America

The following excerpt is from State v. Mancebo, 91 Cal.Rptr.2d 587 (Cal. App. 2000):

Prior to trial, defendant moved for discovery of evidence in the personnel records of several police officers involved in the investigation pursuant to Pitchess v. Superior Court, supra, 11 Cal.3d 531. Defendant alleged he was subjected to coercive techniques during police questioning, including physical force and verbal assaults. A hearing was held on March 27, 1996. The court held an in camera hearing to review the records and determined that nothing relevant to defendant's case existed in the documents. The court then ordered the records sealed. Defendant now requests we do an independent review, and respondent agrees this is the proper procedure on appeal.
