Military Criminal Defense Lawyer
In criminal cases, one of the tactics that is often used is that of the
Confidential Informant. A Confidential Informant is an individual who
is covertly providing verifiable and credible information about criminal
activities to law enforcement officers. More often than not, a criminal
informant has played some part in the crime which is being prosecuted.
They are then spared prosecution in exchange for their information or
Confidential Informants can also play a key role in military cases by pitting
one service member against another in exchange for leniency and/or immunity
based on the information and covert intelligence provided. So, if you
or a loved one suspects or has evidence that a Confidential Informant
is being used by prosecutors to strengthen their case, you need to contact
a court martial attorney right away.
How Confidential Informants Can Impact a Case
The use of a confidential informant can make or break an attorney's
defense strategy. Regardless of whether you are facing charges of
drug offenses or
assault and battery or
espionage, reliable informants can give key, incriminating evidence which may ultimately
sway the judgment handed down by a court-martial or criminal court.
An experienced court martial attorney, however, knows that by thoroughly
investing the crime itself, as well as the Confidential Informant's
involvement in that crime, they are more often than not able to get the
informant discredited and the testimony tossed out. An attorney understands
prosecutors can be aggressive when trying to make their case. With the
