This weekend I am reading Snitching: Criminal Informants and the Erosion of American Justice by Alexandra Natapoff. I came across this book while preparing for a Capital Murder Trial in Benton County earlier this summer. The state intended to introduce several jailhouse informants to testify against my client. We searched all over the US for the preeminent expert on Snitches / Jailhouse informants and ultimately we were led to Professor Alexandra Natapof of Loyola University. Ultimately the case pled and we did not need Professor Natapoff to testify, but I ordered her book anyway. Great read so far. I’ll do a full review once I’m done.
