Badass Longball! I assumed that because it was so easy for me to get as a random person, that the person who went to trial could get copies of all the court documents related to their case mailed directly to their home.Hello Mimedpatient!
After working 35 years in the New York State Criminal Justice system I am quite knowledgeable about the court system, what can be accessed, and about rats! If a rats evidence is used in court then the defendant MUST be given a copy of the rats signed statement or a mistrial will be declared. At least in New York. Anyone who has been ratted on knows exactly who ratted on them and what they said. I can assure you that in New York State growing MJ is not a VICE, it is a actual crime. Of course, I grow it anyway, but I am retired! It is much easier to find facts about the truth than it is to find facts about lies!
my family does private investigations, and its a weird job. In Michigan, And I assume most other states, by paying the state and federal governments, we have access to all the databases that are related to legal matters, except for expunged files. It is really messed up how easy it is to get, and how much information is available about each and every one of us.
Also, for those that want a smile, Michigan passed a law adding PI work as part of the defense you are entitled to w/ a public defender las year or the year before. My uncle is saving lives, by reducing sentences, and getting charges dropped.
So, when Gypsy posts up his court documentation, or someone links the appropriate documentation, we got to not be calling people rats and snitches until its confirmed. I hate hearsay. and conjecture. they are the worst kinds of evidence, and it makes sifting through data suck more than it has to when it is written.
