Re: Will Hawkeye Still be a Part of SHIELD in AoU?
If Hawkeye is guilty of committing a crime, then Selvig would be an accessory to those crimes and would be tried along side Hawkeye. Since we know Selvig is running around in Thor 2, I think it is safe to say Hawkeye and Selvig were cleared of any wrong doing.
Also, innocent by reason of insanity is a real thing and those who prove their insanity at the time of their crime are not held responsible for the crime. However, they would most likely be held in a psychiatric institution (almost a prison) until they are deemed sane and no longer a threat to society, however long that takes. Neither Hawkeye or Selvig would see actual jail time for their crimes.
I don't want people to hate me for the law stuff but I wanted to clarify the insanity stuff. Sorry.
