He could have led the prisoner to complete safety and risked legal action himself or taken the prisoner to jail and have that weigh on his conscience.

We see that one of Gene’s struggles is to do what other people want and not what he does but when Gene does do what he wants to do then it doesn 't end well, while Finny on the other hand says exactly what he wants to say.
