They cut a sweet deal.
But everyone is deaf, dumb and blind, and don't know nothing? They can't even tell when people are hurt and dying, no red flags?
What a total load of BS, that is not believable, when others were hysterical trying to save people's lives.
Saving their own skin, and selective vague memory...just like with Colleen Conaway.
Did these guys save their own skin, and cover for James Ray with foggy memories?
Megan Fredrickson is still using the obscene manic James Ray seminar photo, she was intimately involved with the Colleen Conaway cover-up, and everything else.
To keep using the James Ray seminar photo to promote herself, that says everything.
Did the investigators get somewhat duped by thinking the "employees" will sell out their boss? In these LGAT sects, the senior "employees" are not just employees, they are deeply indoctrinated True Believers and followers, who will lie and cover-up for their boss who is their life Guru.
Will have to wait for the full details, but the article below is sounding like a whitewash from them.
Others have said that they flipped against James Ray, but it doesn't sound like it below.
It sounds like they saved their own necks, and had bad memories for facts and specifics.
Employees of sweat lodge leader granted immunity

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Two employees of a motivational speaker facing manslaughter charges told authorities they had no reason to be alarmed when participants in a deadly Arizona sweat lodge ceremony began vomiting and passing out, because their boss told them such responses were to be expected, according to documents released Friday.
Megan and Josh Fredrickson participated in the October sweat lodge ceremony near Sedona, which authorities say led to the deaths of three people. The event was led by self-help guru James Arthur Ray.
Authorities in central Arizona's Yavapai County interviewed the Fredricksons in mid-January on the condition that nothing they said would be used against them.
The couple said staff members at sweat lodge ceremony provided water to participants and took some other precautions, but few had formal training in dealing with heat stroke and other health problems.
Three people died following the two-hour ceremony, and Ray is facing three counts of manslaughter. He pleaded not guilty this week and is being held in a Yavapai County jail on $5 million bond.
The Fredricksons went to work for Ray in 2005 at his Carlsbad, Calif.-based company, James Ray International. Megan Fredrickson most recently was the company's director of operations, and Josh Fredrickson worked in technology.
Documents in the case released Friday showed the Fredricksons were granted immunity. In lengthy interviews with investigators, they said they couldn't recall many of the details that participants did when asked what happened in the sweat lodge ceremony at Ray's five-day "Spiritual Warrior" retreat.
Prosecutors contend Ray recklessly crammed participants into a 400-square-foot sweat lodge and chided them for wanting to leave, even as people were vomiting, getting burned by hot rocks, and lying lifeless on the ground. Public records show a pattern of illnesses at Ray-led events.
His attorneys have said the deaths were a tragic accident, not a criminal act.
Megan Fredrickson said people who were vomiting, unresponsive and unconscious raised no red flags with her because Ray had explained those responses were possibilities. She told authorities that her experience with sweat lodges was limited to the ones led by Ray, and she never took it upon herself to research them or find out why people would pass out.
"James is my boss, so I listened to what he says and I listened to what he told participants," she said in court documents.
Three of Ray's volunteers, whom he referred to as part the "Dream Team," were instructed to help passed-out people leave the sweat lodge, she said. They included Josh Fredrickson and Liz Neuman, a Prior Lake, Minn., woman who was among the deceased, said Megan Fredrickson, who was seated next to Ray in the sweat lodge.
Josh Fredrickson said he aided some people but couldn't tell the difference at times between people who were passed out and those who were simply lying close to the ground as Ray instructed them to do if they were having trouble.
He said the staff was not trained to deal with heat stroke or hypothermia, conditions that some of the 18 participants who were hospitalized suffered from.
