Sigh, and said directors are the ones who are charged, not the company.

The idea that you would charge a company with a criminal act was absurd to me.

*Sigh* yerself...

Corporations CAN in fact be criminally charged. Directors MAY be culpable in the chargable actions, but they are not necessarily held criminally liable. Just ask RC Bottling in CA - the company was held criminally liable in the action, and fined over 1/2 million dollars, just a week ago. No directors or employees, or any individual within the company was charged. THE CORPORATION WAS CONVICTED OF CRIMINAL ACTS, AND FINED.

It may be 'absurd' to you, but it's the law.

But you don't get that, 'cause you won't let facts get in the way of the (false) opinions you hold.

The internet is your friend. You should think about using it. You know, for research. Just sayin' is all.
