如果洗衣店父母提供虚假信息但应该分享他们所知道的,他们可能会被起诉: 威廉姆斯

“当布莱恩是一个失踪者而不是逃犯时, 父母不必合作,” 威廉姆斯周六说”Fox News Live.” “现在布莱恩被认为是逃犯, 如果我, 作为律师, 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, 他们 “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,” 他总结.
