Right, Jay. A crime is an act against a preosn. So preosns who have had crimes commited against them are the victims. Therefore, there is no such thing as a “victimless crime”. There are wrong things done that are not done to people, so there could be “victimless wrongs”.


Hi, has anyone heard about the reduction for minimum custody inmates and when the 2 for 1 credit earning will be implemented for this group? Also, my husband was sentenced in Sept 2013 for 4 years at halftime, so his halftime release date is 8/2015. Since the 2/10/14 court order, does this mean he will only be serving 33% of his remaining halftime? I’m confused and trying to get clarification on how this might be calculated. Any thoughts? Thank you!
