My question that comes to mind,, if a person who you suspect to be a undercover police man or woman or a narc signs a contract stating that he or she is NOT is that a legal contract. If they were to turn out to be one would that stand up in a court of law as a agreement or binding contract??



Interesting question.

I have heard if you straight up ask 'em. They are obligated to answer honestly. However, I have also had that idea discounted.So I can't help ya there.

It's the aspect of "In writing", that makes your question interesting. I would be curious to hear an answer from someone reading since I AM OBVIOUSLY NOT A LAWYER, nor am I in LAW ENFORCEMENT....AND YOU'VE GOT THAT IN WRITTING!! :D


It's not a legally binding contract because there's no mutual consideration (A & B each give each other something). Lacking consideration, the possible narc's "contract" is nothing more than a written statement that s/he is not a narc. It has no more weight than a similar oral statment.

Since police are allowed to use deception in their investigations, I can think of no reason they may not lie about being narcs. That is, after all, the whole idea behind undercover work. :)

This is not legal advice and you are not my client. Double check everything with your own attorney and your state's laws.
