I have a brother-in-law who happens to be the suspect of a murder case. (Murder with 59 stabbed wounds). Here is the thing, my brother-in-law is just the accomplice and he was with someone who really participated on the crime.
The family of the deceased, wants them to pay a certain amount so they will file an affidavit of dissistance stating that they will not go after then nor pursue with the filing of the case if they pay the certain amount.
My questions are:
1. is that possible for a murder case? I mean the settlement?
2. will they be freed from being imprisoned after the settlement?
Please enlighten me because much as I dont want to meddle on their affairs, I just want to help the parents clear up their minds if giving money is really a good idea or else it will just be a waste of money.
It is not that I dont trust their lawyer, but he is known of something, so I need your help Atty's who have a good heart.
