Prosecution of corporations and other businesses is a complicated process. For example, the company itself may not be fully responsible for the actions of a rogue employee or group of employees. There are also considerations of the impact on other employees, shareholders, and the community.
In these scenarios, a company might be able to lessen the consequences or even avoid prosecution altogether by conducting a proper internal investigation, determining the cause of what went wrong, and setting up a corporate compliance plan.
