Just got back from being out of town for awhile and catching up at the office on a rainy Sunday.The topic today is the use of snitches in drug cases in both Federal Court and State Court criminal cases. The U.S.Attorney General has published a guideline on how the FBI should use confidential informants. A copy of the report can be found here .Unfortunately, there is no guidelines for the use of informants on the state level.It begs the question of why there is no written policy on the use of snitches in Tennessee.
