Lance Armstrong Interview Part 2
Simply put, Lance Armstrong should spend time in a federal prison. Unfortunately all of his achievements are overshadowed by illegal, unethical and self serving behavior. #1 Perjury. His recent admissions indicate he has perjured himself, repeatedly. In the United States, under Federal law, the general perjury statute provides for a sentence of up to 5 years in prison, 18 USC 1621. #2 Criminal misrepresentation and fraud. All of the companies that paid him ten of millions of dollars were defrauded. Illegally obtaining money from (someone) by deception. A misrepresentation need not be intentionally false to create liability. A statement made with conscious ignorance or a reckless disregard for the truth can create liability. Nondisclosure of material or important facts can result in liability. #3 Harassment / Frivolous litigation. A harassment lawsuit is a case brought before a judge because a party has been harassed. If the party who files the lawsuit is able to prove his case, stiff penalties may apply for the accused party. A person who is convicted of harassing another may go to jail. In some cases, however, the penalty is monetary in nature, and the defendant ends up paying a fine or compensating the plaintiff in some other manner.
