In-custody Informants in Florida

The Florida Supreme Court adopted a rule of criminal procedure in 2014 which requires that when informants offer testimony, the prosecution must disclose materials to the defense, including: the substance and circumstances of the statements the informant will testify about, the informant’s complete criminal history, and other cases in which they cooperated with law enforcement in exchange for benefits. Effective: 2014.
