Second, the government may believe that the client is truthful, but the quality and/or quantity of information provided by the client may or may not be considered marginal to the government. In other circumstances, the government may submit a plea to the client that the client refuses. While all parties acted in good faith and no agreement was violated, the government`s letter will continue to allow the information provided by the customer to use derivatives. This provides a great advantage for the government in carrying out each subsequent client investigation. In the case of a trial, the information provided at the witness meeting would allow the government to know what the accused will say when he testifies and to use the proposed information for the purpose of dismissal, if the client proposes testimony that is in a different part of the meeting of the offer. Third, while the government agrees that the information provided by the client at a protection meeting should not be used against the client in a criminal case, the default letter allows the government to directly use the information provided during the offer if the witness subsequently refuses to conclude the cooperation initially agreed upon by the client. “Formal immunity” – In accordance with the federal immunity status (18 U.C 600l and seq.) or Maryland immunity status (9-123, court article), a prosecutor may require a court to compel a witness to testify.

C.- 1341, 1343 and 1346. Many cooperation and sales agreements contain a paragraph that states that in the event of an allegation that the customer has breached the agreement, the government will notify the customer before using proffer information. This type of agreement also provides, in general, that the client is entitled to a court hearing before the use of proffer information by the government, during which the government must find a violation of the cooperation agreement because of an overload of evidence. Even if the agreement does not contain such language, counsel should insist that the client be entitled to such a hearing in due process and argue forcefully that the government cannot unilaterally determine whether there is a breach of the agreement.
