For 10 years the Durham, North Carolina, police department has been paying criminal informants for their testimony without revealing those payments to defense attorneys or, apparently, to prosecutors.

He says the officer who filled out those expenditure reports simply used the wrong term and meant only that the case had been disposed of.
