People v. Dimitrov

In People v. Dimitrov (1995) 33 Cal.App.4th 18, three informants stated they had bought drugs from the defendant. The court held the informants' identities did not have to be disclosed in a prosecution of the defendant for possession of drugs for sale. Since the defendant was charged with possession and not sale, there was no reasonable possibility the informants, whose only contact with the defendant occurred prior to the time of the charged possession, could have exonerating information.
