He was not familiar with the Oklahoma Bar rules.

    If Brady doesn't apply to a grand jury proceeding I stand corrected.
    I think one issue is that the defense isn’t involved in the grand jury process. Brady applies to disclosing information to the defense.

    Brady doesn't apply to grand jury proceedings. See United States v. Williams (1992).

    Primary Holding:
    A district court may not dismiss an otherwise valid indictment because the Government failed to disclose to the grand jury "substantial exculpatory evidence" in its possession.

    ....requiring the prosecutor to present exculpatory as well as inculpatory evidence would alter the grand jury's historical role, transforming it from an accusatory body that sits to assess whether there is adequate basis for bringing a criminal charge into an adjudicatory body that sits to determine guilt or innocence.
