Looking at search and seizure issues in criminal defense, P.2

In our last post, we began looking at the issue of search and seizure law, particularly the warrant requirement, which is an important area to explore when building a thorough criminal defense case. This is especially true when it is suspected that law enforcement hasn’t done its job properly in this area.  

A Sex Offender Sets A Flytrap For Children

A man who owned and operated a Polk County carpet cleaning company for years now stands accused of grooming children for sex. He led a secret life, according to reports, bringing children into his home while his wife was away at work. Fox 13 notes that the man "had trampolines at his home, a swimming pool, lots of kids toys and the latest electronics that would interest children."

In recent posts, we’ve been looking at the topic of facial recognition technology as used in law enforcement. As we noted last time, critics of the technology argue that its use may raise constitutional issues. In this post, we wanted to say a bit more about that.

Use of facial recognition technology in law enforcement raises privacy, constitutional concerns, P.2

In our last post, we began looking at the use of facial recognition technology in law enforcement, and particularly at concerns raised by a recent report from Georgetown University. As we mentioned last time, 16 states currently allow the use of facial recognition technology in some form, and Florida is among them.

Law enforcement agencies use all kinds of tools and strategies to improve their efforts to identify criminal activity and bring offenders to justice. This includes making use of technologies like three-dimensional crime scene imaging, body-worn cameras, predictive analysis software, thermal imaging, and through-the-wall radar. 

When law enforcement relies on an unreliable informant, P.1

In our last post, we mentioned a report recently released by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration which found that the agency has essentially had poor management and control over its use of confidential informants. Not only does the report highlight the waste of resources resulting from its lack of solid policies for managing informants, which amounts to millions of dollars over less than five years, but there is also the fact that the DEA has not had an objective way to measure the reliability of its informants.

Report highlights DEA’s misuse of confidential informants

State and federal law enforcement agencies use a wide variety of strategies and tools to investigate drug crimes. Among these is the use of confidential informants to obtain information and leads that would otherwise be unavailable. Law enforcement sometimes make use of informants as anonymous tipsters, and sometimes they strike deals with individuals who have been charged with or convicted of a crime in order to gain access to information the offender has to offer about an investigation.
