When Is Lying Considered “Illegal”?
By Mitch Clarke, Marketing —
If you’ve ever watched a crime drama, you’ll know that people lie to law enforcement all the time. They lie about where they were, what they did, and who they were with. Even those who weren’t involved with the crime will lie to protect themselves or someone they know.
Bad Cop, Bad Cop
According to a report by The Dallas News, these lies could be illegal. While lying to a city police officer isn’t outlawed by Texas law, lying to a federal agent definitely carries legal consequences. Edward Villarreal and Craig Woods, were recently sentenced to 5 years in prison for lying to federal agents about their involvement with a known drug lord in the Dallas area. Their lies caused a delay in the investigation which resulted in the misuse of state funding.
