SPRC 7 DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS, EXHIBITS, AND STENOGRAPHIC NOTES No records, exhibits, or stenographic notes shall be considered for destruction in a case in which the death penalty has been imposed while the defendant is still alive. Before destroying any records, exhibits, or notes in a capital case, the clerk will provide 60 days notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the prosecuting attorney, to the defendant's last known attorney of record, and to the defendant. To allow this notice, an attorney who represents the defendant in any challenge to the conviction should notify the clerk of the trial court of the fact of representation and the attorney's current address. Such notification does not constitute an appearance for any purpose other than receiving notice under this rule.
