A quick definition of arrestable offense:

An arrestable offense is when someone breaks the law and can be arrested for it. It can be a small crime or a big one, like stealing or hurting someone. In England, an arrestable offense is when the punishment is set by law or if the crime can lead to five years in jail.

A more thorough explanation:

An arrestable offense is a violation of the law that can result in an arrest. It is a crime, often a minor one, that can lead to imprisonment or other penalties. In English law, an offense is considered arrestable if the punishment is fixed by law or if a statute authorizes imprisonment for up to five years.

  • Larceny: This is an acquisitive offense that involves the unlawful appropriation of another person's property. It is a type of theft that can result in an arrest.
  • Assault: This is an offense that involves the threat of violence or the use of force against another person. It is a type of violent crime that can lead to an arrest.
  • Drug possession: This is an offense that involves the possession of illegal drugs. It is a type of drug crime that can result in an arrest.

These examples illustrate how an offense can be considered arrestable if it violates the law and can lead to imprisonment or other penalties. They also show how different types of crimes can fall under the category of arrestable offenses.

I mean fuck it right. Like, maybe they can help somehow. Probably they can't but if the alternative is "i dont go to gulc" who cares

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
