Indemnifying white collar defendants



Should prosecutors be able to give companies the choice between indemnifying accused employees or facing ruinous criminal penalties? Today's WSJ reports on recent events, and I discuss the issue. Of course this could undermine deterrence. But, then, if that's the goal, maybe we should just dispense with costly trials.
