criminal sanction

Read a random definition: GRUT

A quick definition of criminal sanction:

A criminal sanction is a punishment given to someone who breaks the law. This can include things like fines or restitution. It is only given after a person has been found guilty in a criminal trial. Sanctions are meant to make people follow the law and can be very serious, like going to jail. Sometimes, a court may also order a "shame sanction" which is meant to publicly embarrass someone who has been convicted of a crime.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: A penalty or coercive measure that results from failure to comply with a law, rule, or order. It is a legally authorized post-conviction deprivation suffered by a human being through governmental action.

Examples:

  • Penal Sanction: A fine or restitution attached to a criminal conviction.
  • Death-Penalty Sanction: A court's order dismissing the suit or entering a default judgment in favor of the plaintiff because of extreme discovery abuses by a party or because of a party's action or inaction that shows an unwillingness to participate in the case.
  • Shame Sanction: A criminal sanction designed to stigmatize or disgrace a convicted offender, and often to alert the public about the offender's conviction. An example is being required to post a sign in one's yard stating, “Convicted Child Molester Lives Here.”

The examples illustrate how criminal sanctions are imposed on individuals who fail to comply with the law or commit a crime. These sanctions can range from fines to more severe punishments like the death penalty. Shame sanctions are designed to publicly shame and stigmatize the offender, serving as a warning to others and alerting the public about the offender's conviction.

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.
