Brady v Maryland

According to Brady v Maryland, all exculpatory evidence must be turned over to the defense by the prosecution. If the prosecution withholds evidence and they convict the defendent, he can appeal the verdict based on the Brady violation. The problem with that scenario is, you're appealing your conviction to the Judge that presided over your trial and believed you were guilty in the first place.
