Infractions

Within our society, crime is now placed into infraction levels based on the severity of the crime itself. Judging by how many times an infraction occurs, this determines if the repeat offenses should be counted as a higher level infraction.

Level 1 infraction: Commonly known as misdemeanor crimes, these crimes are usually just public incidents, with the range of punishment ranging from a ⊛50 Credit fine to 6 months in state prison. The most common Level 1 crimes are petty theft [1], public intoxication, false I.D.s, and speeding. For a person to receive a Level 2 infraction by not committing any Level 2 crimes, a person must commit 7 or more Level 1
infractions.

Level 2 infraction: These crimes are more severe than Level 1 infractions, but are not severe enough to be considered a Level 3. The most common Level 2 crimes are trespassing, vandalism, prostitution, and theft [2]. Most Level 2 punishments are from 6 months in state prison to 2 years in federal prison. For a person to receive a Level 3 by repeatedly committing Level 2 crimes, one must commit 6 or more Level 2 crimes.

Level 3 infraction: Level 3 infractions are usually considered the last of soft crimes [3] to be committed before being reclassified as a criminal [4]. Level 3 infractions are usually counted by committing cases of identity theft, assault, and attempted murder, with a sentence between 2 to 5 years in federal prison, and re-classification by committing 5 or more Level 3 infractions.

Level 4 infractions: This level is the only one that specifically classifies what crime it is: body mutilation, be it rape, torture, dismemberment, or murder, if it harms the person bodily, then it is classified as Level 4. The sentence time is from 5 to 15 years in federal prison, and the amount of infractions allowed are 2.

Level 5 infractions: This level also coincides with Level 4 as it deals with kidnapping, vehicular manslaughter [5], armed theft, or any other crime that can have long-term effects, similar to Level 4. Level 5 infractions have the same sentence time and amount of infractions.

Level 6 infractions: This level is the last level not to use the death sentence. The crimes committed here include treason, mass murder, and mass destruction. The sentence time is usually between 15 years to life in federal prison, with only one or more Level 4 or 5 infractions to receive a Level 6

Level 7 infractions: The crimes in this level have so far been only committed by government officials, and the crimes include genocide, ethnic cleansing, and war crimes. This ranking grants an automatic death sentence, yet there is no way to receive a Level 7 infraction by repeatedly committing Level 6 infractions.

[1] Petty theft is classified as only stealing from wallets and purses.
[2] Theft is classified here as stealing from bank accounts, from homes, or possessions of high value (I.e. cars, accounts, and appliances), and prostitution, in this case, means operating without a license.
[3] Soft crimes are crimes located within Levels 1-3 and do not have much of a negative impact on victims.
[4] Citizens that have committed crimes from Levels 1-3 are classified as felons.
[5] Most cases of vehicular manslaughter usually end with the victim dying almost immediately.
