LEO: Conflict of Interests/Assistant  LE Op. 487


Conflict of Interests/Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney as

Witness for Prosecution.


September 3, 1982


A Commonwealth's attorney's office is subject to the same restrictions

applicable to a private law firm. Consequently, it would be improper for a

Commonwealth's attorney or his assistant to testify in a case which the

other is prosecuting. [See DR:5-101 and DR:5-102.]


Committee Opinion September 3, 1982
