Question 5: Only individuals convicted of criminal acts can be placed on probation, an organization can be subjected to fines and other monetary penalties.
The ANSWER is FALSE. Companies as well as individuals can be placed on probation under the Guidelines. Part D of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations, addresses the length of probation, conditions of probation, and violations of probation conditions for companies. In most cases some sort of intrusive oversight is imposed.
