    with less


    Much of the evidence that has been gathered in the case is circumstantial, the officials conceded, while saying that many convictions had been obtained with less.

    many convictions had been obtained
    with less. = many convictions had been obtained with less valid evidences.

    Am I right?


    Thanks.

    Not "evidences" -- "evidence".

    Re: with less

    Todd Baxter, a former Rochester police captain, had just taken over as Greece police chief. “It came to me in three boxes and it was a mess,” Mr. Baxter, who now runs a veterans group in Rochester, said of the case file. "I said, ‘Let’s close it, with or without an arrest — but let’s answer everyone’s questions.’ ”
    What is meant by 'in three boxes and it was a mess'?
