Johnson’s attorney asks for evidence, records from the county
An attorney for suspended Griz starting quarterback Jordan Johnson says the county needs to produce records, or the case should be dismissed.
Johnson pleaded not guilty to sexual intercourse without consent earlier this month, after an incident that allegedly occurred between him and a friend in February.
Monday, Johnson’s attorney David Paoli filed a motion in Missoula County District Court, requesting that the County Attorney’s Office provide transcripts/videos of interviews with witnesses and the alleged victim. Paoli’s also asked for the alleged victim’s medical and school records, dating back to when she was five.
In the motion Paoli said calls to the County Attorney's Office for this information have yet to be returned, so he filed a motion.
He goes on to write, “…if the State does not immediately produce all discovery materials, Johnson requests that the charges against him be dismissed based on the disadvantage that has been created by the State’s failure to produce the requested discover.”
The county has yet to file a response.
