PACDL Submits Amicus BriefsPACDL's Amicus Committee recently filed two amicus briefs. In the first case, Commonwealth v. Adams, the Association argued that any mechanical or presumptive "fugitive disentitlement" rule is inconsistent with the constitutional right to appeal and the the governing rule of appellate procedure. In the second case, Commonwealth v. Gill, PACDL argued that the evidence of the 2016 burglary is admissible as relevant evidence under Rule 401 without the need for Rule 404(b) analysis. In the alternative, PACDL suggested that negating the defendant's guilt is a proper non-propensity purpose under Rule 404(b).
