The Maker of OxyContin Will Plead Guilty for Fueling the Opioid Crisis

quote [ The company will admit that it “knowingly and intentionally conspired and agreed with others to aid and abet” the use of its drugs. ]

What a nice thing to wake up to.

If a petty thief incorporates himself in Delaware, can he avoid also jail time for shoplifting by claiming it was the corporation that stole the candy bar? Can the thief then agree that the corporation will pay the fine? Can the corporation then declare bankruptcy and avoid the fine?


I mean, it seems like a lot to just steal a Snickers, but sometimes I'm really hungry.

I think you could get a tax break to do it in Maryland instead, you Wealth Creator you.

Always incorporate in Delaware ( the happiest place on earth for corporations) and commit your crimes elsewhere.

So what? They'll get a slap on the wrist and business will continue as usual.
