Criminal Resource Manual 839 Report Of Violations


Report of Violations

It is immaterial, when prosecuting an offender under any of the criminal provisions, whether the procedure set forth in 18 U.S.C. §  3057(a) has or has not been followed. Dean v. United States, 51 F.2d 481 (9th Cir. 1931). This section does not confer any procedural rights upon a defendant relating to Speedy Trial or pre-indictment delay. United States v. Filiberti, 353 F. Supp. 252 (D.Conn. 1973).
To facilitate the investigations required by § 3057(a) the court in In re Stockbridge Funding Company, 153 B.R. 654 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1993), extended a "bankruptcy crimes investigatory privilege" to a Chapter 11 trustee who had reported a suspected crime. The full extent of coverage of this privilege has been left open.
