Yes, the DA does have to turn over the results of the bloodwork, as well as copies of ALL evidence the DA has in their possession.

Usually a "discovery packet" that contains copies of all the evidence is turned over to your defense attorney at Arraignment (your first court date).

Then evidence is periodically turned over from there as it comes into the DA's possession.

But yes, you attorney should have copies of all the evidence the DA has.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
