“ブライアンが行方不明者で逃亡者ではなかったとき, 両親は協力する必要はありませんでした,” ウィリアムズは土曜日に言った”Fox News Live.” “ブライアンは正義から逃亡者と見なされている今, もし私が, 弁護士として, was representing the parents, I would tell them not to say anything.”
Williams said the parents have constitutional protections that allow them to keep silent, and any statements they give to the police could be used against Brian or another family member.
Florida Statute 777.03, which states that a person commits a felony offense when they assist an individual in evading detection or arrest, does not apply to family members, protecting Laundrie’s parents from being charged with any crime.
Williams said if family members know information about Brian’s whereabouts, they should come forward, but if they give false information, 彼ら “could be charged with a crime of accessory after the fact or contributing to his delinquency or his being gone.”
Based on the resources that are being put into the search for Laundrie, Williams said he believes law enforcement has more information than they are releasing.
“I believe at some stage here, clearly with the facts that we know, that there is and will be probable cause to possibly arrest Brian for…the murder of Gabby Petito,” he concluded.
