A quick definition of crime without victims:

Crime without victims refers to actions that are considered illegal by the law, but do not harm any specific person or group. These are also known as victimless crimes. Examples include drug use, gambling, and prostitution. While these actions may be considered morally wrong by some, they do not directly harm anyone and therefore do not have a specific victim. However, they are still punishable by law.

A more thorough explanation:

Crime without victims refers to acts that are considered illegal by the law but do not have a direct victim. These are also known as victimless crimes. Examples of victimless crimes include drug use, prostitution, and gambling.

For instance, drug use is illegal, but it does not necessarily harm anyone else. Similarly, prostitution and gambling are illegal in many places, but they do not necessarily involve a victim who is harmed by the activity.

However, it is important to note that victimless crimes can have indirect consequences. For example, drug use can lead to addiction and health problems, and prostitution and gambling can contribute to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and financial problems.

Overall, crime without victims refers to acts that are illegal but do not have a direct victim. While these activities may not harm anyone else, they can have indirect consequences that affect individuals and society as a whole.
