Twisted and screwy…you cannot plead the 5th in this instance. In no other court does anyone have to testify or else face prison for being silent except for in front of a federal grand jury. This needs to be changed.
“At Halliday’s civil contempt hearing, prosecutors granted Halliday immunity for his grand jury testimony after the court determined the man couldn’t claim a Fifth Amendment privilege. Despite the immunity promise, Halliday still refused to testify, court documents state. Halliday was then found to be in civil contempt and was incarcerated for 108 days. A criminal contempt charge followed, in which Halliday was ordered to prison for 10 months.”
