ABSTRACT

Sixth Amendment Implications of Law Enforcement Contact with Corporate Executives: Memorandum for Merrick B. Garland, Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General [April 15, 1994]   [open pdf - 28KB]

"You have asked us to consider the Sixth Amendment implications of law enforcement contacts with high-ranking corporate executives while criminal or civil penalty proceedings are pending against the corporation that employs the executives. We conclude that such contacts violate the Sixth Amendment when criminal charges have been filed, but that law enforcement contacts of this nature do not contravene the Sixth Amendment when civil penalty proceedings are in progress."
