My question is this: What sort of penalties would this character face? Is interfering with the investigation of a rather large and serious matter such as a serial killer at large the sort of crime that would get her jail time, or a large fine, or what? Will her age affect the outcome?
I've already googled the terms "NY state penal code interfering with investigation" and "NY state police interfering penalties." I've gotten several articles about how the laws are defined, but not the penalties for breaking them. Thank you!
