As a criminal defense lawyer, I am often asked about the difference between a CI ( confidential informant) and UO ( undercover officer) when used in narcotics cases in Indianapolis, IN. A confidential informant is a person who works for police to help obtain information about sales of illegal narcotics. A CI may be working off his or her own charges or being paid to do ” buys”
A narcotic buy utilizing a CI usually consists of police searching the CI and his/her vehicle, placing a recording device on a CI or in his/her vehicle and supplying him or her with prerecorded IMPD cash.
If you or your loved one has been charges with possession of a narcotic drug or dealing a narcotic drug in Indianapolis IN please feel free to call or text Greg Spencer- Indianapolis criminal defense attorney at (317)-918-5982 seven days a week.
