This could in some instances include family members or close friends of the person who committed the crime.” (2006, p.1) The impact of such crimes is long lasting in particularly for violent crimes. The victims of violent crimes, if the survive at all; suffer from both physical and psychological scars. These scars can often result in tremendous loss both in their personal lives and or their work lives. When a victim has suffered from a horrific crime, the courts have occasionally considered victim's compensation as a means of at least to a degree making up for individual’s losses. Smith (2006) defines victim compensation as a “form of income redistribution designed to redistribute wealth from offenders to victims of crime” (307).

Kimberley Fudge Revision of my Dui Paper Professor Davenport English 215 June 4, 2013 Could you live with being responsible for a death? Drunk driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle (car, bus, truck, moped etc) after consuming alcohol. In 2003 42, 643 fatalities were caused by vehicle crashes, out of those 17,013 (40%) were alcohol related. A crash is considered alcohol related if any driver, pedestrian or passenger involved has any trace of alcohol or there is a suspicion of alcohol usage. Unfortunately intoxicated victims of crashes sustain worse injuries and are more likely to be seriously injured than the sober victims according to a study by the University of Michigan.

The driver could lose control of the car due to technical problems or weather conditions, an accident could happen because of other driver’s fault, breaking driving laws could cause unsafe situations.

Laws is not something too many people care about, but it is illegal in most states to drive in a car without having a seatbelt on. Not wearing a seatbelt may injure and even kill the driver and the passengers in case of an accident. Also, not being buckled up may cause injuries and deaths to people different from the ones not following the rule.
The Consequences of the Criminal Mind Davina Fitzgerald Thomas Research Paper General Psychology Miller-Motte Technical College THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE CRIMINAL MIND 2 What are consequences? Consequences are a result of a recent occurring incident. Results of a consequence can either be good or bad, but in most cases they are not a positive result. The consequences reflect the severity of the actions, that take place and comes with different levels of penalty. For example, reckless driving could result in a car accident.
Personal injury can be a wide variety of injuries from a minor abrasion due to a fall up to and including death. The tort laws in the US do have a statute of limitations. The two basic types of torts are compensatory and punitive. Compensatory allows the personally injured to recover actual costs of the wrong doing. These can include medical bills, property damage cost of repair, and even loss of pay.

A user could over dose on the particular drug or the altered perception from the drug could cause the person to make a deadly mistake. For example, if someone were to be under the influence of a drug and decided to drive a car or something in that nature, it could cause a wreck. This could kill the person using the drug or an innocent bystander.
Two concepts are useful: mala prohibita and mala in se. The first term means acts that are wrong because they are prohibited, such as driving your car above a certain speed on a particular roadway. The second term means acts that are evil at all times and all places, such as sexual abuse of a child. Obviously there are numerous laws that prohibit crimes which are in themselves evil, such as the statutes against murder, rape, child abuse, and a long list of others. These laws are useful because they establish levels of various crimes -- differentiating, for example, between killing a person by neglect (involuntary manslaughter), killing without intent (voluntary manslaughter), killing on impulse (second-degree murder) and premeditated, planned killing (first degree murder).
