As a criminal defense attorney, you'll typically find me sitting opposite of my local law enforcement in the court room but that doesn't mean I'm working against them. We both have an important and necessary job to do in our judicial system. What if you find yourself in a position to help the police do their job? What should you do? If you have witnessed a crime that is being investigated, you should always cooperate with the police. But what about when you or your son/daughter has been asked to help the police as a confidential informant? Should you cooperate in this situation as well?
