All of the discussion, is not allowable in a civil proceeding that may occur or in a criminal case that may occur however, statements you make in a subsequent criminal prosecution can be used against you example: Mary Meretricious goes to elderly and gets half a million dollars, and spends all the money on herself rather than on promised investments. This leaks and the securities division of the secretary of state comes to talk to her and they negotiate with her and she makes imperial remarks about her wants, intentions, motives, etc. The negotiations disclosed information that they then brought a criminal charge about. They cannot say that she accepted certain negotiations, but they can use her statements about her. Ex: “I wanted to…” is a statement, but an acceptance of the oﬀer or the oﬀer itself cannot be brought up 408b: exceptions for 408: show bias (#11 page 411) negotiate contention undue delay obstruction of justice (#8 page 410) Ricketts v.
