More Putnam County officials are weighing in on the legislature's decision to settle a federal lawsuit by Anthony DiPippo for 12 million dollars. Sheriff Robert Langley cited comments from Legislator Neal Sullivan alleging that the Sheriff’s Department had a policy of not adhering to the requirement to turn over evidence which could be helpful to the defense. Langley noted that the “Brady Rule” is a pretrial discovery rule that requires the Prosecution to turn over to the defendant in a criminal case all exculpatory evidence in the possession of the Police and Prosecution. He says the department follows that rule in order to minimize the risk of liability to Putnam County. DiPippo, on his third trial for the rape and murder of a 12-year old girl in Carmel, was found not guilty.
