An immunity AGREEMENT can be very broad. The witness can agree that nothing in his testimony can incriminate him, OR that nothing that the government finds out as a result of his testimony can incriminate him. Which is a very nice deal.

Having immunity GRANTED can mean as little as no prosecution for the answers given in response to questioning, BUT, if the answers open an investigation into other illicit dealings independent of the actions about which the witness is questioned, the witness can and will be prosecuted for those.

Mr. Furious : ...your rage will become your master? That's what you were going to say. Right? Right?

The Sphinx : Not necessarily.

Awesome answer. I have a follow-up question: during coverage of the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI, this past weekend, the commentators said a couple of times that the swim course was "some of the saltiest water in the world." Is such a statement true, and how is such a thing measured/known/predicted?
