Florida Confidential Informants "Pulling a Jeremy"

Confidential Informant, Criminal Defense, Federal Criminal DefenseThere are notable cases when defense attorneys have had their clients released from jail to act as a confidential informant (C.I.) . This practice is sometimes called "pulling a Jeremy." Named for the confidential informant's code name that led to the eventual capture of President Manuel Noriega. There is often "bad press" surrounding this practice since it is understood that the C.I. will resume illegal activity in order to fit back into their gang, "family" or group.
