WHITE COLLAR DEFENDER AND FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR ON THE DOJ’S LATEST ATTEMPTS TO DETER CORPORATE CRIME
From the book:
The Justice Department is in the throes of revising its FCPA enforcement model. As the DOJ re-examines its approach, policymakers have to ask the tough questions:
- Does the extraction of large corporate fines without criminal guilty pleas promote deterrence?
- Do shareholders unfairly bear the burden of criminal fines and penalties?
- What impact has the current strategy had on individual prosecutions and the need to deter future misconduct?
