Jailhouse Informants

One might think that the link between jailhouse informant testimony/wrongful convictions and the magnitude of the incentives offered to jailhouse informants would be enough to neutralize informants in the eyes of the jury. On the contrary, jailhouse informant testimony is persuasive to jurors. The defense must find a way to impeach the jailhouse informant and educate jurors on the dangers of this type of testimony.
