Anonymous asked in Politics & GovernmentLaw Enforcement & Police · 1 decade ago

What, if anything, would you be charged with (murder, manslaughter, accessory or facilitation) if?

You framed a person for a crime; they were found guilty and went to prison. Another inmate murders the person, you framed, while they are in prison. The person you framed subsequently found innocent of the crime he went to prison for and you were found guilty of the orginal crime. Keeping in mind the person that you framed would not have been murdered, if you, had not framed them

    You would be charged and convicted of the original crime.

    You would be charged with obstruction of justice for framing the other person.

    You would get no charges in connection with his death. The inmate who killed him would get a murder charge.

    His estate could sue you and the murderer for wrongful death (he would get most of the blame, but you might get some of the blame for putting him there).

    No crime. The framing is not closely related to the subsequent murder, nor is a direct or proximate cause of the murder.

    If you were found guilty of the crime then you would have already been charged with murder. First you get charged, then you go to court, then you get convicted. Not the other way around.

    Also how can a dead person be found Innocent? Its impossible to try a dead man.

    I would think you would be found guilty of the first crime, and possibly fraud or similar charges depending on what the crime you framed them for was, and you would likely be charged with manslaughter.
