THANKS FORSTICKING WITH US, I’M JANEMONREAL.AND I’M PATRICK NOLAN.

I’VE BNEESPEAKING TO A LEGAL EXPERT ..

INTHE WAKE OF THE DISCOVERY OFBRIAN LAUNDRIE’S REMAINS ..

TOFIND OUT WHERE HIS PARENTS FITINTO ALL OF THIS.(ZOOM, 3;48--3:54)PROFESSOR RANDPHOLBRACCIALARGHE/NOVA SOUTHEASTERNUNIVERSITY SHEPARD BROAD COLLEGEOF LAW: Everybody is of courseveryps uet by the death.

Myguess is they’reery vupset too.(ZOOM, 3:57--4:40)WFTX: We’ve coveder peopleprotesting outside the house.They’ve accused the family ofeverything.

And one of thethings they’ve brought up isthat his family met North PortPolice at the door when BrianLaundrie was alive and inseidthe house.

And the parents toldpoli, ce"He’s not allowed tospeak to you, contact ourattorney." Is there anythingillegal about that.

PROFESSORRANDOLPH BRACCIALARGHE/NAOVSOUTASHETERN UNIVERSITY SHEPARDBROAD COLLEGE OF LAW: No, onedoes not have to cooperate withpolice.

Now if one’s a suspect,for example, if they had awarrant out for his arrest, andthen they would have tocooperate.

If they had reasonto, they could’ve got a warrantto search the house.

If theysuspected they had cause tobelieve that.

But apparently thepolice didn’t think so.(Zoom, 5:13--5:23)WFTX: Based on your knowledge ofpast cases, would it be unusualfor them to bring any chargesagainst the parents for anythingconnected to Gabby Petito’sdeath?(Zoom, 5:35--:5:58)PROFESSOR RANDOLPHBRACCIALARGHE/NOVA SOUTHEASTERNUNIVERSITY SHEPARD BROAD COLLEGEOF LAW: The fact tt haFlorida, we have this statutethat permits family to not becharged with accessory after thefact for third degree felonie,for crimes that are third degreefelonies or less.

I haveev nerknown that to come udup ring 40something years I’ve beenpracticing law.

Doesn’t meanthat it hasn’t.

But I’ve neverbeen aware of it.(Zoom, 6:04 - 6:13)PROFESSOR RANDOLPHBRACCIALARGHE/NOVA SOUTHEASTERNUNIVERSITY SHEPARD BROAD COLLEGEOF LAW: Now, on the other handI’m also not aware of familybeing charged which they couldbe for accessory after the ftacif they aided someone inescaping a justice.(zoom, 7:30--39)WFTX: Professor RandolphBraccialarghe, law professor atNova Southeastern University.Thank you so much.
