Private Investigations and Personal Security/trial transcripts


Hello, I am trying to find trial transcripts from a 1981 murder trial in Westchester County N.Y. I can't find out how to get them. thank you

The first place I would go is directly to the court, and inquire if the transcripts for that case are archived. I would next attempt to determine who the court reporter was and make contact with that person. I would also contact the law firms that were involved. being a murder and a capital crime, I would think that there is a good chance the transcripts have been archived. You also have the District Attorney's office to go to as well as the police department. Lastly, see if the local newspaper covered the story and you may find that they have a copy also.

If there was a conviction on a death case, there usually is an automate appeal. Therefore, you could also check with the Appellate Court in the applicable jurisdiction.

If all those fail, you may be out of luck
