JUDGE RULES THAT THE IMMUNITY AGREEMENT CANNOT BE REVOKED
A Beaver County Judge ruled that the Attorney General cannot unilaterally revoke an immunity agreement siding with the defense attorney, Steven Townsend.
The immunity agreement reached with the Attorney General’s Office was the point of contention in a motion filed by Mr. Ochs. Ochs alleges that he never breached the immunity agreement but the AG’s office unilaterally revoked the agreement and did so without reservation. The Court agreed with Ochs and held that the government can’t do as they wish on a “whim” or without oversight. The court also denied the AG’s request to have this matter sent back to the presiding grand jury judge.
