Confidences and Secrets - Immunity.


February 28, 1980


It would not be ethically proper for an attorney to reveal to the

Commonwealth's Attorney that his client is, in fact, guilty of a crime

rather than the actual accused, for purposes of obtaining immunity for his

client, unless his client expressly consents to such disclosure. [See II:

 DR:4-101(A) and (B).]
