  •  civil and regulatory actions? (0+ / 0-)

    If the statute of limitations ran out on the original crime (2004), is there something we could do by way of:

    a)  SEC regulations about ethical and professional obligations of high execs in publicly-traded corporations?

    b)  FCC regulations about ethical and professional obligations of high execs in broadcasting corporations (they own over-the-air FCC regulated stuff, so....)?

    Also what about a criminal offense involving failure to report a known criminal act?  Something along the lines of concealing evidence?   How did she get away with not naming the guy once it became known that the offense occurred?  

    You can't just tell the FBI, "sorry, I don't want to name my accomplice," because naming an accomplice does not entail incriminating oneself any further than would occur by not-naming him (once the offense has come to light in the first place).   Or could one get away with that by invoking the general right to remain silent per Miranda?
