Federal Gun-Running or Gun Trafficking Defense Strategies 

  • Fabricated Evidence and Flawed Testimony : Evidence that is fabricated and flawed testimonies from the forensic unit are not applicable to use in court. If we can prove evidence was fabricated, for example, it can help assert your innocence. 
  • Paid snitches: Paid snitches include confidential informants, and because they’re paid defense lawyers can question the credibility of the informant, and the credibility of their testimony. Inherently they are unreliable and alter the evidence that is provided so it helps the defense raise questions about the “evidence” against someone alleged with a crime.
