    Why did they not charge the husband also, not for the crime itself, but for not reporting it? In most states, there are no general "misprision" laws, as they are known, although the federal statute is still on the books. Misprision, often misspelled as misprison, is the idea that a citizen has the obligation to raise the "hue and cry" when her or she observes or has knowledge of a crime, generally only felonies, and has been the law in England for centuries. If you see someone being murdered, you cannot be prosecuted for not reporting it except in South Carolina. You can go on about your business as if nothing happened. But in the case of child abuse, it IS illegal not to report it in most states. Why was the husband not charged?
