In an unprecedented disclosure, ABC15 is publishing “Brady list” misconduct files for more than 100 Phoenix police officials.

The internal investigations and records summarize the integrity concerns — typically documented cases of dishonesty and criminal activity — for Phoenix Police officers that were listed as “active” in the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office “Brady list” database.

Watch the 'Full Disclosure" investigative special in the player above.

The officers’ files, listed below, were obtained through a public records request.

In 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court in Brady v. Maryland ruled that police and prosecutors cannot withhold exculpatory evidence, especially past dishonesty by officers. As a result, prosecutors began maintaining “Brady lists” to track law enforcement officials with integrity concerns, including past crimes, lying on the job, and other misconduct.

ABC15’s Full Disclosure investigation has exposed major failures in Arizona’s Brady list system. In response, some departments, county attorneys, and union leaders have downplayed the severity of what can land an officer on a Brady list.

The Phoenix officers’ Brady files show more than 80 percent of the officers were placed on the list related to issues of dishonesty.

ABC15 has spoken to multiple defense attorneys who claim police and prosecutors routinely withhold or conceal “Brady” evidence.

Earlier this year, due to a lack of transparency and a legislative attempt to seal the information, ABC15 also published a searchable statewide database of more than 1400 law enforcement officials on county Brady lists.

The Brady files for the officers below are listed in alphabetical order.
