The Case of the Squirmish Snitch
Attorney Mark Bennett represented an individual charged with Possession of Cocaine in State Court. Bennett learned that the investigation was initiated by a confidential informant.
Gradoni & Associates Investigates
The background investigation of the informant indicated that he was currently on bond awaiting sentencing in Beaumont on a narcotics offense. Investigators began by visiting the informant’s known addresses in order to interview him regarding his involvement.
Tracking Down a Snitch
The activity to locate the informant resulted in a number of phone calls to our offices from DEA investigators and the informant himself. The informant admitted his participation in the case but refused to discuss it. Attorney Mark W. Bennett believed that the pressure put on the informant was helpful in getting the case dismissed.
