Would you be willing to lie to a court for your best friend if it meant saving them from going to jail for life?
No. I'd want to, for sure. But I couldn't go thru with it.
Depends on what they did. If they're going to jail for life seems like it was something bad.
depends on the friend and what they did
Depends on my odds but yeah.
No the risk of me going to jail for perjury is too great.
What if the risk of getting charged with perjury was non-existent? In other words, they'll never find out if you lied. So basically it's whether or not you think your friend deserves to see the inside of a cell.
Risk in lying in court is always high and has consequences and can never be mitigated. Still I wouldn't do it.
No because then an innocent man (me) would go to prison for lying under oath while my friend who probably committed a murder or another horrible act and is facing a life sentence for it would walk free and this is very messed up.
It's your fault for not having better friends
