18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony: A primer for culpable Bay St Louis City Employees

I’m writing this post specifically for one group of people, Bay St Louis City employees that knew what was going on and decided to go along to get along in order to keep their jobs. “I was only following orders” is not a legal defense. Knowing of the commission of a crime and doing nothing is itself a felony.

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

As a matter of editorial policy, Slabbed New Media is calling for the immediate prosecution of any and all Bay St Louis City Employees that had knowledge of, or any involvement in the payroll fraud alleged by Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam.
