Can someone explain to me

How does a corporation plead guilty to criminal charges. Doesn’t there have to be named persons functioning on behalf of the corporation. No episode of Law & Order ever showcased something like this. Or did this all change when the Supreme Court rule that corporations were people about 15 yrs ago.

OP, the Lord works in mysterious ways. Better just embrace the mystery and not think about it too much.

The board votes whether to accept the charges. This usually involves big fines which are still less than the legal costs of going to trial. The CEO signs off on the charges if the board agrees.

Corporations have been people since 1870, hence the Gilded Age. Money has been speech for 15 or so years, hence the impending end of democracy 2024.
