Deferred Prosecution Agreements and Cookie-Cutter Justice
“Lanny A. Breuer, the head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, last week spoke to the New York City Bar Association, extolling the virtues of deferred and nonprosecution agreements as the new standard for how the Justice Department deals with criminal conduct by corporations. It is not just corporate investigations that are being concluded with these agreements. They have been used recently with individuals to resolve investigations, like the recent agreement with the cyclist Floyd Landis over possible fraud charges. The Securities and Exchange Commission has also embraced them as a means to wrap up civil securities fraud cases.”
