As a confidential informant, can I get my felony charge dismissed?

While there is no hard and fast rule, the rule of thumb is that a confidential informant needs to reveal at least three significant new busts to the authorities for discharge to be on the table. However, the decision to recommend dismissal of the charge rests with the prosecution. Ultimately, it is up to the judge to approve the recommendation. We would recommend that you hire an attorney to represent you when you face criminal charges, especially if you think you might want to serve as a confidential informant.


If you are in Kentucky, then I’d recommend that you call my office at 502-587-1950 or 502-509-1490 to schedule a consultation if you have an agreement, parenting schedule or court order to discuss your options.
