WITH SO MANY pork barrel whistleblowers coming out of the woodwork to spill the beans on their bosses, it may be good for them to know just how much immunity they can get for their testimony.
By their very nature, state witnesses are supposed to be given immunity from prosecution; however, that immunity is not necessarily absolute. At the same time, those who want to turn state witness have to meet certain qualifications.
In other words, just having some juicy beans to spill is not enough to qualify anyone for the Witness Protection Program.
For today’s Data a Day:
True or False: A person, who is admitted to the state’s Witness Protection Program, is exempted from prosecution for contempt or perjury while testifying for the state.
