Calling Business A Crime

Growing legions of law-abiding businesspeople, entrepreneurs, managers and even low-level employees are increasingly at risk of being jailed and having their lives ruined, as an aggressive Justice Department expands its interpretations of criminal statutes. In an alarming development, prosecutors are treating unintentional violations of federal agency regulations as criminal and seeking jail time for people even when it is acknowledged there was no evidence of criminal intent.

The recent investigations and prosecutions of some executives and employees are making well-intentioned and innocent people fearful that they may be prosecuted for the conduct of another in which they did not participate, according to one GlaxoSmithKline lawyer.

Crime, Politics and Policy has covered this issue in the past -- see this September 2011 article and July 2011 article, among others --

Eric Dixon is a New York investigative attorney who also advises on strategic and business management matters and consults with people under investigation on how to handle the stress of being sued or investigated or prosecuted.
