A: If you're facing criminal charges based on evidence obtained from a confidential informant (C.I) who you believe is still using drugs, this could be relevant to the credibility of the C.I and the evidence they provided. In legal proceedings, the reliability and credibility of informants can be a crucial aspect of a defense, especially if the evidence from the C.I is a major component of the prosecution's case. It might be beneficial to gather evidence or information that demonstrates the C.I's unreliability or lack of credibility.
