  • Will this hurt a case?

    I just came back from days off and I found a letter on my desk. It was from the state victims assistance fund and they wanted information about an indecent libertiess case I am working where a 25 year old male(registered sex offender) is having sex with a 15 year old female that is a little slow mentally. Well after a little digging and a talk with the chief I found out that the mother (one of our local meth heads) applied for the benefits for her daughter. The bad thing is I am no where near being done with my investigation I haven't even interviewed the suspect yet for god sakes! We are a very small dept and we do our own investigations on top of our patrol duties so finding time to get everthing done is sometimes a pain. Tell me what you think am I just being paranoid.
    BTW I am interviewing the suspect tonight he has been out of town a a family funeral.

    The state can get a continuance for more time to prepare a case. How long as the case been active?

    I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

      Get with your immediate supervisor or the Chief, and run the request by them. My gut tells me to do the following. Reply to the Victim's Compensation Commission in writing, to the effect that the case is still under investigation, and untill your investigation is complete, no information is being released. What it boils down to is this. The Victim's Commision has it's priorities, you have yours. Your priorities should trump anyone else's, in that the purpose of your inquiry is to determine if a crime has been commited, and if so, to make an arrest, and submit the case for prosecution.

        Agreed, inform them that since the case is under investigation, you cannot comment or provide information at this time PERIOD.

          For some reason I want to say that victims compensation can't be filed for until the case is resolved through the court system. But, I can't remember if it's just Nebraska that does it that way. Anyways, I agree with whoever said have the Chief or supervisor do a written reply denying the info.
          Sometimes, doing the right thing means p***ing off the bosses.
