Minnesota Statute

9.09 COMPELLING TESTIMONY; IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION.

┬žSubdivision 1.Conditions of immunity. In any criminal proceeding, including a grand jury proceeding, paternity proceeding, or proceeding in juvenile court, if it appears a person may be entitled to refuse to answer a question or produce evidence of any other kind on the ground that the person may be incriminated thereby, and if the prosecuting attorney, in writing, requests the chief judge of the district or a judge of the court in which the proceeding is pending to order that person to answer the question or produce the evidence, the judge, after notice to the witness and hearing, shall so order if the judge finds that to do so would not be contrary to the public interest and would not be likely to expose the witness to prosecution in another state or in the federal courts.
After complying, and if, but for this section, the witness would have been privileged to withhold the answer given or the evidence produced by the witness, no testimony or other information compelled under the order, or any information directly or indirectly derived from such testimony or other information may be used against the witness in any criminal case, but the witness may be prosecuted or subjected to penalty or forfeiture for any perjury, false swearing or contempt committed in answering, or in failing to answer, or in producing, or failing to produce, evidence in accordance with the order.

Subd. 2.Testimony required; no use of testimony for prosecution. In every case not provided for in subdivision 1 and in which it is provided by law that a witness shall not be excused from giving testimony tending to be self-incriminating, no person shall be excused from testifying or producing any papers or documents on the ground that doing so may tend to criminate the person or subject the person to a penalty or forfeiture; but no testimony or other information directly or indirectly derived from such testimony or other information may be used against the witness in any criminal case, except for perjury committed in such testimony.

I do understand why he don't want to part of the media circus. The guy has/had warrants and has a long checkered criminal history.  The defense would have put him on the stand and tried to make mince meat out of him while the world watched.  Truth be told, it might be better if the did not take the stand. They have enough credible witnesses. This poor guy will only create an opening for the defense.

This is what these sorry cats do. The problem is they have so many warrants and stuff that 12 can use against them they run scared. So many innocent people are sitting in jail because of dudes like this. Like I always say this is why they send your so called best friend to kill you in the streets.

 :lol:

I've heard The Fuzz, The Law, One-Time, Bo-Dean, Pigs, Bacon, 5-0, Johnny Law, Berries, The Man, and a plethora of other nick names I can't remember...But when I started hearing "12" a few years ago, I just lost it... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It is just so quaint, so slick , such an old obscure reference that it makes me laugh. :nod: :lol:

And this is coming from a dude whose pops worked as an officer/detective/special ops for more than 2 decades. It's just funny. :nod:

"12" is from the tv show "Adam 12".

"12" is from the tv show "Adam 12".

As a man in his early 50's, I clearly remember this show So-Flo. That is what is making me chuckle. I understand the reference from being a little kid hearing:

"ADAM 12 ADAM 12!!"

My grandmother used to watch the show religiously... :nod:

I was wondering if y'all were talking about Adam 12. Have not thought about that show in eons.

Exactly

Precisely. His testimony could prejudice the jury against the victim and play right into the defense's hand.

Correct.  The State could offer immunity and have him testify, if they felt his testimony would be beneficial.

How do you know that we live in a failed state? When they have to hold a 4 week murder trial for a crime that everyone saw.
