What happens when a confidential informant agrees to cooperate with law enforcement officers in exchange for leniency in their own criminal case? For many drug crimes, an officer will use a confidential informant to set up a controlled buy in order to gain enough evidence to secure a search warrant or an arrest warrant.
When officers execute a search warrant or an arrest warrant, they are looking for evidence to bring additional charges.
Your best defense for these types of drug crimes requires the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Fighting these types of drug cases requires showing why the CI's testimony is unreliable.
