Due Process – Right to Present Defense – Prosecution Witness’s Attempts to Curry Favor in Other Cases – Cumulative to Credibility

State v. Xavier J. Rockette (II), 2006 WI App 103, PFR filed 6/29/06 ( prior unrelated appeal involving same defendant, different case: 2005 WI App 205)
For Rockette: Timothy A. Provis

Issue/Holding: Excluding evidence that in other, unrelated instances a witness had lied to the police in an attempt to curry favor in his own criminal cases did violate Rockette’s right to present a defense, where this evidence was merely cumulative to other evidence that called the witness’s credibility into question, ¶¶31-37.
