ANSWER

You need to get legal representation immediately. If you can not afford private counsel, you should contact the public defender’s office in your jurisdiction. This is the only way to ensure that you’re rights are protected.

These cases are procedurally different than other cases and require that your attorney file particular motions to litigate issues on the confidential informant and their identity.

Going through a serious situation pro se (without counsel) is suicide. The only result I have EVER seen for someone pro se is a conviction and often prison time.
