Gardner-Garity

Question- If several policemen meet and then at a later date tell the same fictitious story to a civilian investigative agency...have they broken any laws where they can be prosecuted or are they protected from prosecution?

Is it correct that someone can lie while being interviewed and be protected from prosecution or even being fired due to Gardner-Garity?

Regardless of Gardner-Garity has a law been broken if someone chooses to lie to a private detective when being interviewed?

thanks

Let's ask Roch. He knows everything.

Meblogin, I think you have to distinguish between the lie that is told and the fact that a lie was told.

The lie itself is probably protected, but the fact that a person lied may be obstruction. Good question. Don't have time to give you a better answer.

Thanks for your comment Sam and hope that you can comment further.

Is a person lying to a private eye obstruction?

Roch, Doc Mary thinks you can add to the conversation. I agree.

others? I believe that this topic can lead to other plausible ideas that our city leadership may not have considered.

Chuckle. My God, Sam you ARE a lawyer!

Interesting interpretation of my first comment, MeB;)

This city leadership did not consider a lot of things. It's easier to splatter someone's life and career all over the walls of city hall.
