Sophisticated phone surveillance: Enter the stingray

If you're the sort of person who respects police officers and law enforcement efforts generally, yet at the same time retains some skepticism regarding the strategies they sometimes employ, you'll certainly be interested -- and likely grow a bit depressed -- by hearing some of the details relevant to one of their favorite investigatory toys.

Having experienced legal counsel on board important at pre-charge stage, too

If you're of a certain age, you can likely conjure up the names of many cop-related television shows where much of the action takes place in a dimly lit room in the rear of the police precinct.

Making mistakes is part of being human and it's from these mistakes that we grow and learn to make different and better choices. In cases where a mistake or unfortunate circumstance results in criminal charges and a criminal conviction, the resulting punishments can be particularly harsh.
