ASH, UNITED STATES v. 413 U.S. 300 (1973)

The right to counsel did not apply when the prosecutor showed eyewitnesses to a crime an array of photographs, including that of the indicted accused. The photographic showing was merely a part of the prosecutor's trial preparation (that is, done in order to refresh recollection) and neither the defendant's nor his lawyer's presence was constitutionally required.
