    Wall Street wrongdoing: Why no prosecutions?

    "Prosecuting Wall Street," December 4, 2011.

    By 2011, Steve Kroft and his producers began to shift their reporting focus on the Wall Street collapse to accountability.

    "Everybody believed that a lot of heads roll, that some people were probably going to go to jail. That certainly hasn't happened."

    Four years down the road, why haven't U.S. enforcement agencies tried to prosecute any high-level Wall Street executives?

    Kroft and producer James Jacoby began their search for answers last year with this two-part story looking at Countrywide Financial (part 1) and Citigroup (part 2).

    "Prosecuting Wall Street" aired in December 2011. As of April, no charges have been filed.
