Jackson electrical employees were repairing power lines when one of its “cherry pickers” came into contact with a power line, electrocuting a worker. Prior to this accident, the employees had complained to Jackson supervisors that operation of this equipment so near to the power lines was unsafe and exposed them to a significant risk of injury. The supervisors talked this over with Jackson and they all agreed: “We can always replace one of these employees if necessary, but we can’t replace the client for whom we are doing this work.” The supervisors then ordered the employees to continue to work (the crime of criminal negligence). Who can be prosecuted for this crime?
a.Only the supervisors.
b.Only the supervisors and Jackson.
c.Only Jackson Electrical.
d.The supervisors, Jackson and Jackson Electrical.
