Thanks for the answer. The only situation that I can think of like that would be a criminal who is questioned by police and given the option to rat someone out in return for a dropped charge. If you follow football a famous instance of this is the case of Ray Lewis, who was charged with murder and ratted his closest friends out so he could get off. As a result, he was acquitted and they served time. He later compensated them
With money, not that that justifies his actions.
