When you are a witness in an investigation
Who are witnesses?Witnesses are those whom have evidence but no exposure to prosecution. An example is the teller who was held up in a bank robbery.
The goal of witnessesThe goal of a witness is to make sure to stay a witnesses and nothing more. Usually, this simply means telling the truth. However, that task may have its complications. For example:
- You may have sympathies or a relationship with the target and might try to color your testimony to help the target.
- You might have your own scandal that you wish to hide, but that might become relevant to the grand jury’s investigation (e.g., drug addiction, or an adulterous affair with an associate of the target).
