the fbi didnt hand over any documents or video so they threw hers out now what happens to the 2 who went on the run
A: The persons that failed to appear remain subject to prosecution. Jeapordy did not attach to those individuals since they did not appear to defend themselves. There may be reasons that the failure to disclose "Brady" material in the case of accused number one will impact the prosecution of accused 2 and 3. It is impossible to say given the facts stated.
