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.]
