ARTICLE 1B. DISCOVERY.
The court for cause may direct the prosecuting attorney to file a bill of particulars. A bill of particulars may be amended at any time subject to such conditions as justice requires.
§62-1B-2. Defendant's statements; reports of examinations and tests; defendant's books, papers and tangible objects.
Upon motion of a defendant the court may order the prosecuting attorney to permit the defendant to examine and copy or photograph any relevant (1) written or recorded statements or confessions made by the defendant, or copies thereof, which are known by the prosecuting attorney to be within the possession, custody or control of the state, (2) results or reports of physical or mental examinations, and of scientific tests or experiments made in connection with the particular case, or copies thereof, which are known by the prosecuting attorney to be within the possession, custody or control of the state, and (3) books, papers, or tangible objects belonging to or seized from the defendant which are known by the prosecuting attorney to be within the possession, custody or control of the state.
A motion under this article may be made at any time not later than ten days before trial, or at such reasonable later time as the court may permit.
If any provision of this article or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, such invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of the article which can be given effect without the invalid provision or its application, and to this end, the provisions of this article are declared to be severable.
