1. Some people are saying that it's likely DTF chick was paid off to back off pressing charges. I know you can do that (I think) for civil cases, but isn't that obstruction of justice for criminal cases? Meaning, isn't that unlikely in this case?
2. Assuming I'm wrong about that, and that it IS legal to pay someone to drop criminal charges - can that kind of agreement include a clause that DTF chick will never press civil charges? Would Ben then be home free, legally at least?
Thanks for any learned comments, here!
