Tampa Florida Attorneys or Lawyers for Snitches
As a result of the recent murder of a nonviolent offender who was cooperating with police, Florida may now impose strict standards on the use of confidential informants. They may now have the right to talk to an attorney before agreeing to help police. Unfortunately for those under pressure by law enforcement, they would not be allowed into drug treatment programs. Beyond that the proposal would prevent any nonviolent offender from participating in an undercover operation involving weapons or suspects with violent criminal records. There is no requirement for prosecutors to approve the use of an informant.
Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer Michael P. Maddux of Tampa Florida is available to help in these scenarios. Call 888-703-2253 Now!
