Peter Vaira Publishes Article on Brady Sentencing Issue

NAFUSA member Peter Vaira, former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and former attorney in charge of the Chicago Strike Force on Organized Crime, has published an article in the summer/fall issue of the ABA White Collar Crime Committee Newsletter entitled “Brady at Sentencing in Federal Court, a Neglected Practice”.

As Vaira points out, “The obligation of the prosecutor to search for and turn over Brady material extends to the sentencing process.”

Vaira currently is a partner at Vaira & Riley in Philadelphia.
