CRIME & PUNISHMENT

The Uniform Code of Civiilian Justice (UCCJ) is a natural progression from the days of martial laws and the lawyer lynchings of the past. There are no more plea deals or adjudicated sentences. Crime is categorized into four levels LOW-PRIORITY, MID-PRIORITY, HIGH-PRIORITY, and TOP-PRIORITY.

Criminals are allowed a defense attorney (3500-4000eb+), and have the right to remain silent. They may be held a week before a preliminary hearing, where a trial date is set. Bail may be set, but usually the criminal is held in custody until the trail.

HIGH-PRIORITY CRIMES (HPC) – PRIORITY 2

They may be forced to undergo interrogation under truth serum, lie detector, or a psychological reality simulation and analysis. The perp has a preliminary hearing within two weeks of being charged, where a Judge will determine possibility of bail, set a trial date, and decide whether to allow the defendant a lawyer (7000-8000eb+), depending upon the strength of the presented case.
