Confidential informant
This person worked with me
Then pushed her way into my home after I got custody of my daughters kids due to being homeless and on drugs. She found out she was pregnant and stopped doing drugs
Made a complete 360 degree turnaround and has had her children back since feb 21,2017. She has a full time job. She gave birth in march to child number 4
I have the oldest as he is high functioning autism

If she sold or obtained drugs for someone else...and they are willing to testify to this in open court?? That is ample evidence to reach a conviction.

Unlikely...not based on what you are describing. If I were her, I would be seeking a plea agreement to reduce jail time
